A clearly articulated design with accurate measurements ensured
the installation of the light set in just one day and with time to spare.

As founder of Lightscape Design, Ltd. in England, David Lee creates lightscapes that leave lasting impressions. The light set he designed for the U.K. breakout pop band One Direction’s first headlining show at New York’s Madison Square Garden was no different.

For the sold-out concert, Lee envisioned multiple ways to invigorate the show while meeting the requirements posed by the production team. These constraints included fitting his light set around an 80’x30’ video screen and installing his design in just one day. Plus, Lee had only three weeks until show time to execute a plan. Read the full story about Lee’s work on the One Direction concert and what tools in the Vectorworks Spotlight platform helped him achieve stunning results here.

David Lee’s fixture placement, seen here rendered in the Vectorworks software, verified that sight lines and
fixture selection were coordinated with the 80’x30’ video screen.
