The firm of Claude R. Engle, Lighting Consultant was established in 1968 by Mr. Claude R. Engle III to apply his training in Electrical Engineering and experience in theatrical and television lighting to the discipline of architecture. Committed to the design of lighting as an integral part of architectural design, the firm’s services begin with consultation on the conceptual implications of light to the project. The services include the development and detailed specification of lighting systems, lighting fixtures and lighting controls, coordination of the lighting with the architectural details, and the detailed follow-through required to achieve the lighting concepts in the finished projects.
Our timeline of projects begins with Buckminster Fuller’s 1967 Expo Dome in Montreal, skates through the Philadelphia Spectrum, climbs the Hancock Tower, scales the twin towers of the World Trade Center, is observed at the Sears Tower, seen at Roy Thompson Concert Hall, pauses at the Vietnam Memorial, hangs at the Grand Louvre, hangs in the Tokyo International Forum, reflects at the Reichstag, spans Millenium Bridge, races at the McLaren Group Headquarters, sparkles in the Winspear Opera House, rotates at One World Trade Center, and reposes at Chateau Margaux Winery. And it is still ongoing.
