Solid State Lighting: Energy Savings and New Architecture through Great Science and Engineering.
 

Summary: Solid State Lighting: Energy Savings and New Architecture through Great
Science and Engineering.
A public lecture by Steven DenBaars [MRL, UCSB] and Barry Winick, AIA [Peter
Marino Architects LLC]
To a packed audience of over 200 students and local
residents, the UCSB MRL supported a public lecture
on the subject of solid state lighting, emphasizing the
promise of a much cleaner, more efficient, and
longer-lasting lighting source. Santa Barbara
architect Barry Winick presented the unusual ways
that compact, efficient sources of light can be used in
commercial (retail) architecture. Front and center
was his recent Chanel building in Tokyo, which has
been dubbed a modern wonder by Business Week
magazine. The glass facade of the Chanel store in
Tokyo's swanky Ginza district lights up the night
with 700,000 embedded LEDs. This massive 10 story
display can show an electronic version of the brand's
signature black-and-white tweed pattern (think
Chanel suit), or a video of fashion show footage.
