Senior Designer Glenn Fujimura was born in San Diego and grew up in California and Utah. He holds a BA in Theatre Arts, with a specialization in Lighting Design from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon. Glenn studied Lighting Design and Architecture at Parsons, the New School for Design's graduate programs in New York City. He became interested in Lighting Design through his experiences working on theatre beginning in high school, because it offered a creative form of expression rooted within a technical medium.
In 2019, Glenn joined L'Observatoire Intl. as a Senior Designer, bringing his eight years of professional experience in lighting design to the team. Since joining, Glenn has worked on such projects as the REACH at KCPA in Washington, DC and the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi.
To Glenn, the highest accomplishment is to create light that harmonizes so completely with the environment that it feels acutely natural. To such a degree, it is inevitable that his work is not actively noticed, but it still shapes the mood and perception of those amid it.
