Two projects that Jeff Goldberg photographed were among the winners of the 2013 Architecture Lighting Light & Architecture Design Awards.
The Best Use of Daylighting Award was given to the St. Katherine Drexel Chapel at Xavier University of Louisiana. The lighting for the Chapel in New Orleans was designed by Cline Bettridge Bernstein Lighting Design.
The chapel breaks away from traditional churches both in style and in lighting approach. The ramped entrance to the building by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects has a narrow skylight that introduces daylight into the interior, and natural light is prevalent in the octagonal sanctuary. In the main gathering and worship space, Cline Bettridge Bernstein focused on creating an environment that would shift subtly from daylighting to electric lighting in the early evening hours.
