      Here’s an event you’ll find especially illuminating: the Lighting Architecture Movement Project—yes, that’s LAMP—is all aglow with its second annual international lighting-design exhibition at 188 Kingsway.

      This year’s top 10 lamps were chosen from over 50 submissions worldwide by a jury of esteemed pros, including architect Gregory Henriquez, lighting designer Matthew McCormick, and molo studio’s Stephanie Forsythe and Todd MacAllen, who judged contenders on the use of sustainable material, LED lights, originality, and integration of this year’s theme, FIBRE. Mind-blowers on display include Portland-based winner Spencer Staley’s elegantly cascading, white “Droop” (shown here) and Tasmanian Duncan Meerding’s self-descriptive, loglike “Stump”. The opening event kicks off Thursday (November 20), with the show open to the public by donation from Friday to Monday (November 21 to 24).
