TUSTIN, Calif. - Internationally known lighting designed Janet Lennox Moyer, LC, IALD, has joined Landscape Communications, publisher of "Landscape Architect and Specifier News" and "Landscape Contractor magazines, as associate editor with an emphasis on lighting.

Ms. Moyer is a highly respected lighting designer with local and national design awards to her credit. Although she has done major interior commercial and residential lighting in her 24 years of lighting design practice, her emphasis shifted to landscape lighting in 1983. Her projects include the lighting of Levi Plaza in San Francisco; the Detroit Civic Center; Greenville, S.C., Commons; and many special residential properties across the nation.

Recent completed projects include the lighting for several city blocks in downtown Tacoma, Wash., incorporating a 200-foot long "Waterwall;" a planned resort in the new Egyptian city of Safaga; and a palace in Abu Dhabi.

Ms. Moyer has received numerous lighting awards, including the prestigious General Electric "Edison Award" in 1985 and again in 1997 and several illuminating Engineering Society local, regional and national awards; and the 1992 Romain Myers Memorial Award from the IES Golden Gate section.

She is the author of the internationally acclaimed and only professional book on the subject of landscape lighting, "The Landscape Lighting Book," published in 1992 and aimed at lighting and landscape designers and contractors worldwide. Her next book, "Winter Lights" --excerpts appearing in this issue -- will show the nature of light during the darker time of the year.

Recognized for her own design skills, Ms. Moyer has judged many lighting competitions on local, national and international levels, including the IIDA Awards for the illuminating Engineering Society; the General Electric Edison Award; and the City of Austin, Tex., international Bridge Lighting Competition.

Actively involved in education, she has served on the staffs of the University of Michigan Architectural College; the Academy of Art College in San Francisco; University of California, Berkeley, Landscape Architecture Extension Program; and the Cook College Landscape Program at Rutgers University in New Jersey.

Currently a faculty member at the Lighting Research Center of Rensselaer Polytechnic University in Troy, New York, she continues to actively participate as Design Principal and as Consultant on select Projects for MSH Visual Planners.
