Designer Jacinda Rosss received her Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture at the University of Wisconsin where she quickly realized the experiential and physiological impacts within a space are enormously dependent upon the animation and accentuation of light, both natural and electric. She went on to Parsons School of Design for a dual Master’s Degree in Architecture and Lighting. Her thesis was on the re-envisioning of urban rooftops and the potential there for place-making with light-embracing architectural geometries.
Jacinda joined L’Observatoire International in June 2021 after years of working between New York and San Francisco in the lighting design field. Jacinda’s current projects include work on a residential estate in Montauk and and the Ramses hospitality project in Madrid. Jacinda has continued involvement in lighting academia by teaching at Parson’s School of Design and has juried for design studios at Parson’s, Pratt, Drexel University in Philadelphia, and the California College of the Arts in San Francisco.
