FIU Students Visit Atlanta Lighting Showrooms and Manufacturing Facilities


FIU’s Interior Architecture department seeks to deepen student learning through providing a variety of learning experiences that happen both inside and outside the classroom. Last month, third year students traveled to Atlanta, Georgia to expand their knowledge in interior design, interior design profession, and lighting design.

During the week of March 2nd, students were in Atlanta to visit prominent firms, view exceptional design, consult with lighting design experts, and to tour lighting manufacturers’ showrooms. They stopped by Lithonia Lighting Center by Aculty Lighting and Eaton’s Cooper Lighting, where they experienced tours of the space and its equipment. The students also visited Perkins + Will, Heery International, and HOK.

A highlight of the three-day trip was their time at the High Museum of Art, an institution known for its collection of classic and contemporary art and its award-winning architecture by Richard Meier and Renzo Piano.
