Have you ever been conscious of lighting in different spaces? Did you ever ask yourself what effect light has on our well-being and productivity? Or, what makes good or bad lighting?
The fact is, light planning is more than just an aesthetic element of our space.
Efficient and sustainable light planning in homes, offices, schools and hospitals is becoming a crucial element in design worldwide enhancing our psychological well-being.
If you are an Architect, an Interior Designer, a student of either disciplines or even just interested, this course will introduce you to the fundamental knowledge of both artificial and natural light as a special design element, as well as it’s psychological effect on the occupants of the space. In this course, you will be able to assess visual comfort both qualitatively and quantitatively. You will then apply this knowledge to come up with your own lighting solutions for different space functions using model building medium and/or computer simulation.
The course will cover some DIALUX Software tutorials as a tool to design and technically assess your personal Light planning outcome.
Requirements: PC laptop with windows.
