The winners of the 2013 Lamp Lighting Solutions Awards have been announced. With a total of 608 projects submitted from 52 countries, €48,000 in prize money has been awarded to 5 winning teams. The Lamp Awards were given to projects that successfully met the architectural lighting needs of an interior or exterior space, having created a positive synergy between the architecture, interior design, landscaping and lighting. The four categories included Architectural Outdoor Lighting, Indoor Lighting, Urban and Landscape Lighting, and Students Proposals.

The 2013 Lamp Lighting Solutions Awards Winners are:

Architectural Outdoor Lighting: The Rookery

A 2013 Lamp Award and prize of €15,000 was awarded to The Rookery in Chicago, by Office for Visual Interaction (OVI). As the judges stated, the award was given for “the lighting designer’s treatment of this historical building façade which is both sympathetic and innovative. All of the luminaries are concealed, using a clever mounting arm system, to protect the integrity of the building that picks out each detail of the intricate masonry carving."

Indoor Lighting: Cineteca Matadero

A 2013 Lamp Award and prize of €15,000 was awarded to the project Cineteca Matadero, in Madrid, by Churtichaga+Quadra-Salcedo, because “the judges felt that this stunning scheme, using a lit woven basket structure to lift a once gruesome space (it was a slaughterhouse) into a contemporary art centre, is nothing short of miraculous. Strips of LED light the baskets and the space they occupy to create a magical effect thus greatly enhancing the visitor experience.”

Urban and Landscape Lighting: Gardens by the Bay, Marina South, and Collective Light for Rural Africa

The Jury decided to award this prize to two projects so the prize is divided between them.

Awarded €7,500, the judges have decided to give a 2013 Lamp Award to Gardens by the Bay, Marina South, in Singapore, by Lighting Planners Associates (LPA). As the jury stated, “The genius of this scheme is its scale and the ability to integrate all the areas into a tangible, environmentally friendly, design. The judges felt that the scheme engages visitors with interactive light elements whilst at the same time creating dramatic centerpieces using layers of shadow and light and not just blankets of overlit spaces.”

And with a prize of €7,500, the judges decided to give a 2013 Lamp Award to Collective Light for Rural Africa, in Mali, by Matteo Ferroni. The jury stated that “at the other end of the scale the judges loved this innovative idea to generate local light for local communities. The ‘lighting tool’ uses an LED module with bicycle parts, water pipes and a telephone cable to create off-grid lighting. The system has now brought communities together at night in addition to the day. Ingenious.”

Student Proposals: The Hope

With a prize of €3,000, the judges have decided to give a 2013 Lamp Award to The Hope by Daniel Guerra and Alejandra Muelas, ETSAM students. “The professionalism of all the student entries impressed the judges but this particular proposal had a practical, as well as an inspirational, purpose," stated the jury. "Beautifully presented with a quirky video, The Hope is an evacuation solution to disaster struck areas and its people. A ray of light in times of turmoil.”

LAMP has edited the book Lighting Concepts '13 for the occasion. It includes the work of the contest's finalists and winners. More information can be found here.
