About the Event

Brief

Lighting layouts are not the same as lighting design. Quality lighting design begins with  concept development - a form of programming for the visual environment that considers  many elements such as perception, contrast, and visibility. This seminar outlines the steps  taken on various diverse projects to address those essentials and create the desired mood,  atmosphere, and functionality.

The case studies span different sectors, from heritage to retail to residential, and identify  the range of challenges that good design can help overcome, with many universal lessons.

At the end of the seminar, attendees will:

  1. Understand the value of “lighting with intention”,
  2. Recognize how project challenges and goals guide the development of a lighting design,  
  3. Appreciate the challenges and opportunities that lighting controls present and  
  4. See how designers can deeply affect perception through lighted effects.
