Course Description: Navigating architects on how light affects our environment regarding our health, safety, and welfare. A few of the themes are circadian focused lighting, flicker, glare, lighting and safety, lighting and perception, color temperature, and the impact of poorly designed lighting in our exterior environments. Attendees will gain knowledge of valuable lighting design facts which can be implemented in their future designs.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understanding the potential health implications of our built environment. How well implemented Circadian lighting and the positive effects it has to sync our biological clock and showcasing relevant applications. Conversely, how flicker and glare should be avoided, and the potential health implications such as headaches, eye strain, and fatigue.

2.  On the safety portion of this presentation, we discuss the importance of following codes, ordinances, and mandates as well as following the lighting recommendations (the IES lighting handbook). We also discuss the perception of safety and what can be done to enhance the perception of safety in our public spaces.

3. How different lighting strategies in the same space can create a different perception for the user and their comfort. We address public vs. private space, larger spaces vs. smaller spaces, and how lighting can help elevate the human experience.

4. Providing guidelines and recommendations to architects and designers so they can avoid any of the negative implications of poorly designed lighting in architectural environments while enhancing the spaces for their intended user experience.
