“7. Lighting

• Carry out a site survey whenever possible to assess the conditions in which an exhibition will take place, and familiarize yourself with any existing lighting infrastructure and daylight parameters.
• Examine existing electrical installations and determine whether they are adequate to support new lighting. Considering the routing of cables carefully.
• Plan the lighting early on. It is easier to add it at the beginning of the the design process than at the end.
• Create a lighting scheme that supports the exhibition structure and helps the convey the show's concept.
• Ensure that all graphical information that is intended to be read and adequately illuminated, and check the readability of the information.
• Consider the amount of heat the lighting will generate. Hot lamps may harm the exhibits and if the heat build-up is too great, additional air-conditioning may be needed.
• Make your collaborators aware of the lighting solutions you intend to provide by circulating your lighting plans to all relevant parties.”
