A Story of Success: 20,000 Euro for Light Cocoon

Lu06-Lichtkokon

Prof. Wolfgang Rang, professor at Frankfurts’s University of Applied Sciences (the FH FFM), has just won an award worth 20,000 euro for teaching excellence. Prof. Rang’s disciplines are Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geomatics and he won the award for he Luminale-project “Light Cocoon”.

The project was realized in the course of the Light+Building+Luminale in the year 2006. Visitors of the fair were able to inspect on foot the 16 metre sculpture, which combines daylight with artificial light. An exhibition by architecture students at the FH FFM under the direction of Prof. Rang with light as ist theme formed another part of the same project, as did a light symposium at which a variety of lectures were devoted to the role of light in architecture.

The State of Hesse’s „Award for Teaching Excellence“ are designed to reward university lecturers with a spezial commitment to teaching. Prof. Rang, whose project not only provided a clear illustration of certain scientific principles but also initiated students in the practical implementation of ideas based upon them, was presented with the award by the state’s Minister of Science, Udo Corts.

This is in fact the third award to have been given in respect of this project, the others being the Newcomer’s Prize in the FAMAB’s ADAM competition and Second Prize for Student Projects at the International Architecture Awards in Bologna.
