Who am I

Background

I ’m a devoted architectural and independent lighting designer and light is my passion. My name is Marta Coda Muradás and I am MCM Lighting. I am currently living in Madrid working as a freelance. I was born in Spain, travelled a lot and lived in several countries.

With 13 years of work experience in lighting design, mostly working for Light Cibles and lately for Citelum US and Citelum Spain. I had the opportunity to participate and lead amazing projects from concept to installation. Most of the projects I have been involved in were exterior lighting projects; lighting master plans, urban realm, modern & heritage architecture and landscape. I have also participated in interior projects such as hotels, restaurants and residential. I am familiar with lighting norms from different countries.

I am a CLD (Certified Lighting Designer**) held by IALD (International Association of Lighting Designers). I am a senior member of APDI (Asociación Profesional de Diseñadores de Iluminación). I currently teach in the Master of Architectural Lighting at IED Madrid (European Design Institute). I have been invited to give several lectures throughout the years in different educational institutions which i enjoyed very much.

**The Certified Lighting Designer (CLD) certification is the first evidence-based certification in architectural lighting design in the world. The certification process is designed to assess whether an individual is able to operate as a lead architectural lighting designer in a professional and proficient manner.
