Parsons The New School for Design | Parsons East Building, 25 East 13th Street
Architect James Karl Fischer began his explorations of light while majoring in physics. His advanced explorations in the history, theory and practice of professional ethics in medicine, law and architecture led to a unique contribution to the understanding of designers' environmental responsibility. He is the executive director for the Zoological Lighting Institute, a full service lighting design practice that contributes its expertise in the nascent science of environmental photo biology to key zoological and wildlife conservation projects worldwide.The Institute works as environmentalists-- interested in the various relationships of light to life, as physicists--interested in the radiometric aspects of light as a physical quality, and as artists---interested in the role of light in cultural understanding.
