Deanna Valcour

IALD IES

Designer

On a whim, Ms. Valcour signed up for an undergrad lighting class at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The class focused on how lighting affects the human body – how we perceive light, how light can influence circadian rhythms, and how light can be used as a tool to design healthier built environments. Deanna was hooked, fascinated that lighting’s effects went beyond purely aesthetic or task-based requirements.

She graduated RPI with a Bachelor in Architecture and continued her studies at the Lighting Research Center, where she received a Master of Science in Architectural Sciences with a Concentration in Lighting.

At school, Deanna gained a strong skillset in conveying design concepts ranging in scale from urban plans to façade details. In her graduate studies, she developed metrics to help guide lighting designers to create healthier environments that meet the needs of their building inhabitants.

Outside the office, Deanna enjoys making things and likes to paint and work on DIY projects, while watching terrible TV. She’s currently teaching herself to bake a wide range of goodies and hopes one day to create the perfect sourdough loaf. When she’s not bouncing between her many indoor interests, she likes to be out in the sunshine, exploring the city’s green spaces.
