Associate | Light + Health

Ryan Conover joined The Lighting Practice in 2011. He graduated from Philadelphia University with a Bachelor of Architecture degree. Ryan previously worked as an electrical contractor, gaining hands-on experience that helps him with construction documentation. He has designed successful lighting design solutions for a variety of project types, including healthcare, education, historic, places of worship, transportation, landscape, and retail.

What is the best thing about your job?
I get to collaboratively design spaces that can make people’s lives better. I also love the variety of project types; it keeps work fresh and exciting.

If you could only specify one light source on every project for the rest of your life, what would it be?
A concealed source. Hiding light sources so that you only experience the effects of the luminaire can make a space magical.

What is your dream project?
I’m a die-hard Houston Astros fan so I’d have to say their next baseball stadium.

What is your personal mission statement?
There’s no second chance for a first impression.
