Presented by BostonLightSource
Course description: Light plays a critical role in the spaces we construct and for the people who inhabit them. As the built environment transforms from the assembly of inanimate materials crafted by a series of independent trade artisans to a world of intelligent, interconnected solid state electronic devices, new methodology is the imperative.
The advancement of LED technology has disrupted the electric lighting industry. As the rate of innovation continues, opportunities rise to leverage LED sources in ways that were never possible with legacy sources. Unconventional thinking about light as a naturally occurring phenomenon allows for greater design freedom and reduced environmental impacts. This course explains basic and advanced optical theories of how natural and electric light can be used together to their maximum potential, redefining many of the elements of design to enhance the human experience and improve infrastructure and connectivity.
- Explore the basics of advanced architectural anidolic daylighting strategies and determine how they can be deployed with LEDs in solid state lighting technologies.
- Analyze human visual interpretation of light and color and how that affects perception in the built environment; distinguish different types of light spectrum control and discuss the color tuning abilities of tunable white fixtures to improve the comfort and well-being of people in the noted environment.
- Identify application best practices for minimal energy usage in commercial and institutional settings using specific examples that focus on energy efficiency and sustainable design values.
- Recognize the role of a lighting system as the backbone infrastructure in the next generation of buildings that synthesizes all elements of lighting design – industrial, optical, electrical, thermal and mechanical.
