A Seminar on Lighting Design will be Held by InterLumi and COARQ on July 11


As part of the training activities scheduled for the third edition of InterLumi Panama 2018, the organizer (America Expo Group) and the Association of Architects of Panama (COARQ) have partnered to celebrate, for the first time in Panama, a seminar on Lighting Design that will feature the participation of leading international professionals specialized in the field. It will take place on July 11 within the framework of InterLumi Panama 2018, the international lighting and renewable energy fair that will be held from July 11th to 13th, 2018 at ATLAPA Convention Center in Panama City.


COARQ is an association dedicated to serve society and state institutions for the development of a better understanding of architectural professional practices and is also the ethical and professional body for Panamanian architects.


“It’s a fascinating topic that I’m sure will deeply interest many professional engineers and architects, as well as students; Panama is a modern city that must be at the forefront in lighting issues”, Mr. Marcos Murillo, director of the College of Architects, said, regarding the need to properly illuminate urban spaces, for both public and private. He also mentioned that lighting plays a key role to highlight the architectural qualities.


In addition to the seminar, COARQ and InterLumi Panama will recognize an architectural work. It will be selected by the jury of the MOA Awards (Best Architectural Work). Since 1953, MOA awards rewards the best developed architectural projects and its design architects, also they have an award for the execution, administration and inspection of the works. MOA belongs to COARQ.


After the recognition of this year, the aim is creating a new category next year to reward the “best illuminated work” that will be chosen and awarded by the same Jury. This new distinction will encourage the use of a better illumination of the architectural works in Panama.


Every architect, engineer and other professionals interested in lighting are welcomed to participate. Contact the Association of Architects of Panama (COARQ) in order to register for the seminar and the trade show. This is a unique opportunity in Panama for professionals seeking to catch up on the field of lighting design.
