SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Arup, a multidisciplinary engineering and consulting firm with a reputation for delivering innovative and sustainable designs, announced today that Emily Dufner, lighting designer, has joined its San Francisco, Calif. office as an associate. She recently spent 13 years in Europe and transferred from Arup's office in Berlin, Germany to further develop its lighting practice in the Americas.

She is passionate about cities, culture, and the role that design plays in the way people use public spaces.

Working on several remarkable projects around the world, her best-known include the Beijing National Stadium in Beijing, China; the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco; St. Pancras Chambers, London, UK; the London 2012 Olympics Athletes Village and Olympic Lighting Design Advisor in London, UK; and the Msheireb Lighting Masterplan, Doha, Qatar.

"Her global experience puts her at the forefront of the lighting and design industry, and the experience she gained working throughout the world will benefit Arup as we continue to grow our lighting practice, focusing on world class architecture, lighting masterplans and urban strategies."
Emily holds a bachelors degree in architectural engineering at Kansas State University and a master's degree in city design and social science from the London School of Economics. Among the many awards she's won, she was notably recognized as the 2004 'Young Lighter of the Year' from the Society of Light and Lighting, and was bestowed, as part of the design team, the 'International Dark Sky Award' for the 2012 Olympic Park and Athlete's Village in London.
In the past five years, Arup's American lighting team has designed award-winning solutions for airports, museums, media facades, urbanscapes and campuses, hotels and corporate headquarters.
