A Conversation with Jackson Stigwood - Lighting Designer
S03E06 Jackson Stigwood – Lighting Designer
BDes, MArch, Tech IES, Assoc. IALD
Jackson is the founding director of A Billion Suns. He moved into lighting architecture and design in 2008, working on a range of projects in Australia, Asia, the Middle East and Europe. He takes a keen interest in conducting lighting research at both macro and micro scales in the built and urban environment. The practice uses this research to understand key issues that need to be addressed as well as highlighting design opportunities for future development.
Since 2015 Jackson has been an active member and coordinator of the Victorian chapter of the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD). In 2019 he began the podcast series Light, Cities and Architecture, as a platform to provide lighting education to the community whilst raising awareness of the lighting design profession. In 2020 he launched the Cri Awards, a publicly funded initiative which seeks to highlight, design, and implement positive community change to awfully lit environments within our cities. He firmly believes that whilst we push the design boundaries at the top of the lighting industry, we must also be consciously aware and making improvements to the bottom line within our cities.
