ID 507 - Art and Science of Interior Lighting

The principles of interior lighting are explored through lectures, field trips, testing, and studio projects to develop an advanced understanding of potential design solutions. Through demonstration within the lighting lab and software simulation students analyze and compare luminaries, lamping options, and controls.   Participants address the aesthetic, functional, environmental, and regulatory needs of residential and commercial lighting requirements of interior spaces. Topics such as daylight, glare, color rendition, light distribution, control and dimming, energy consumption, energy codes, heat production, light trespass, cost, and light pollution are addressed.
