For over a decade, the Fondazione Targetti's Lighting Academy has been a pioneering beacon in the world of lighting design. Functioning both as an online reference resource for lighting professionals and as a much-needed champion of lighting design in general, helping to raise its profile as an autonomous creative profession, the portal has managed not only to develop a directory of some of the most ambitious and memorable lighting projects around, but also to establish an international community of lighting enthusiasts.

Architonic is delighted, therefore, to welcome the Lighting Academy into the Architonic family, where, within www.architonic.com's dedicated 'Lighting Designers' section, we will continue to grow the fine work that the Fondazione Targetti has done by featuring its existing members in the brightest and most inspirational way possible, while adding to the talent with a raft of new lighting-designer profiles.

Anyone familiar with Architonic will know that our standards are exacting. To be granted a profile on www.architonic.com is a seal of approval, a recognition of high-quality design at its best. In this way, the heritage of the Lighting Academy will be preserved, with only exemplary lighting-related projects and profiles making the grade.

By migrating from the Lighting Academy portal to Architonic, the existing collection of featured work is amplifying its online presence, joining a platform that receives over 1 million visitors a month. Architonic's passion for promoting the best products, materials and projects will ensure that the passion of the academy's featured members, made manifest in their striking work, will be exposed to a far greater number of architecture and design professionals, planners, building owners, contract clients and, of course, the press.
