They are among 14 speakers for the daylong event, whose goal is to examine the “latest challenges, research, and creativity in lighting design.”

“We’ll be showing examples of how lighting and user habits are changing in both public and academic libraries,” Mueller said. “We also will discuss our evolving process for making lighting an integral part of our design process for all types of projects from the outset, using accessible, yet capable software that’s able to perform very early-phase light analysis.”

Mueller, a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), and the American Library Association, has worked on public and academic libraries and has written articles for both Library Journal and American Libraries Magazine.
Cornell, AIA, LEED AP, heads up Lighting Research and Practices at Centerbrook, in addition to his regular architectural responsibilities.
