Began his career as a Lighting Designer at the National Theatre of Caracas, Venezuela, his native country. He studied theatrical lighting design at The North Carolina School of the Arts and is currently a Senior Lighting Designer with Schuler Shook, based in Chicago. His diverse experience in the theatre led him to the architectural scene where he worked in the electrical engineering field for over six years on commercial and institutional projects. His passion for lighting led him to Schuler Shook where he has made use of his theatrical and engineering experience to work on a wide variety of projects in Chicago, including Swissotel, Allsteel/Gunlocke Showroom, The Museum of Science and Industry, Lincoln Park Zoo, Chicago Transit Authority, Calamos Investments, The Palmolive Building Restoration, and The Chicago Board of Trade - Lobby Renovation, to name a few.

Giulio Pedota will explore the interdependency between Art and Engineering in Lighting Design. He will address how the marriage of the two disciplines, applied in a balanced form, will lead to successful lighting design. He will also bridge the potential divide by addressing the philosophies of each particular discipline. Samples of work exemplifying this theme, including works from renowned architects, will be discussed to demonstrate the point.
