March Lunch-n-Learn: PritchardPeck Lighting

Kristen Peck



Kristin is an engineer by training and artist at heart. She’s been a lighting designer in San Francisco since pleated pants were popular – she’ll let you do the math on that one. Current work includes three high-rise signature condominium towers in San Francisco, the new 5-star hotel at SFO Airport, AirBnB’s new headquarters, rebranding and flagship for luxury retailer, and she recently completed the award-winning renovation of the historic Strand American Conservatory Theater. Kristin celebrates the inspiration and story behind each project and can wrangle an angry VE mob with poise while still holding the project vision intact. A former Architectural Engineering Jayhawk and President of the Student Chapter of the IESNA at the University of Kansas, she’s thrilled at the invitation to reconnect with the Kansas City chapter.


Join us for a behind-the-scenes look at the romance and drama of working as a Lighting Designer on the San Francisco tech scene. We’ll explore how to give a project heart by looking beyond your lighting toolbox and creating an event out of the simplest of spaces in a DIY world. Ideas for mock-ups, turn & burn speed, and detailing will be discussed using recent projects as examples – both the ups and downs. Lighting Designers, Engineers, Architects, Interior Designers, and Contractors will walk away with a fresh perspective for tackling their next lighting challenge.
