    Sabrina Mandel, architect, lighting designer and professor at the University of Buenos Aires in the Faculty of architecture design and urbanism, loves light and has work with dynamic LED facades projects for the last 15 years in five countries. She loves to defines herself as a woman in lighting.

    As an enthusiastic advocate for the development of research and innovation in lighting design and engineering, she strives to achieve a more robust integration between architecture and dynamic light so that it is more naturally conceived by architects and artists. During the 16 uninterrupted years devoted to the teaching of lighting design, in the exchange of projects and concepts with the students she has learned and still surprise with light and its magic and the glorious plasticity in the use of time in lighting design.

    She was involved in the specification, design, documentation and show light contents in the first Color kinetics projects done in Latin-America. She loves light as a transforming source of sensations both in daily life and in public spaces. She conceives light as the only one responsible for showing us the world around us, having the power to change the reality of what we see and feel.

    Sabrina frequently contributes to lighting forums, attends regional lighting designer meetings, and attends international trade shows around the world. Her work has been published internationally, earning many accolades.

    Key topics and learnings


    Dynamic lighting is not just RGB, it has to do with the light that changes, as our environment changes. That static light is no longer what it was.


    Dynamic light, as the fourth dimension of architecture, is not a show, it is light that changes, as natural light changes, how everything changes in this fast-paced world that we are living today. 


    Today, every lighting system, automated or not, is light in motion. If the light does not change, the elements that inhabit the space change. We are beings in constant movement.


    Both in RGB color movement and in white tone movement like natural light does. The variable of time, in lighting design, is already one more tool to design with light, and not an element to plan in the end. The lighting scenes are applied both for the annual programming of a facade and for the lighting of a room in a building or the lighting of a public square. Of course, it can be done in the interactive lighting environment, but it is not the only way.

    The most interesting thing is to see how dynamic lighting affects our senses. It changes our lives.


    Learning objectives:


    • Learn how dynamic lighting affects our senses.
    • Why lighting should not be designed as static?
    • Why dynamic lighting shouldn't just be RGB?
    • How to conceive time as another dimension of architecture.
