“To Light, or Not to Light?”: Developing Lighting Concepts

November 19th 12:00 PM ET

What is lighting design, and why does focusing on lighting layouts fall short? 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.
Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
