Managing Editor, Line Goyette Lighting in the service of beauty and heritage

Summer is drawing to an end, and while we've been at work, on vacation or on the move, we've each had opportunities to discover new uses for lighting. In this issue we present lighting in the service of beautiful heritage and contemporary architecture. In fact, we know well how lighting can reveal the forgotten faces of our built heritage. You will find that these projects share a respect for place as they modernize and optimize lighting.

Also read about how keeping LEDs clean can extend their lifetime and maintain their efficiency. Good reading!
