Light & Joy:

Correlating Good Lighting Design and Installation

with Human Health and Happiness

 

Description

Light and lighting design play essential roles in the enhancement of the human experience in buildings. Lighting done well is aesthetically pleasing and emotionally uplifting. Increasingly we understand that the principles of good lighting design actually provide measurable physiological and psychological benefits. By starting from darkness to compose the most visually enlivening, resource efficient, and healthful lighting systems, designers can optimize daylighting and task lighting instead of worrying about visually boring and wasteful “ambient” or general lighting systems.

 

This session will correlate good lighting design principles that we know intuitively to be joyful with lighting research findings about positive impacts on human health. These techniques also contribute to the achievement of ambitious sustainable benchmarking goals such as Living Building, WELL, and LEED certification.  


Learning Objectives 

  • Encounter lighting design principles used by professionals to instill a joyful visual experience. 
  • Discern the veracity and applicability of current research and knowledge about light and human health. 
  • Correlate lighting design basics with new understandings about human visual response and circadian well-being.
  • Explore collaborative techniques to inform architectural and interior design approaches to enhance lighting quality and visual performance
