Presented by: Yvonne English, Legends Design Studios
Friday, March 30th - 1:30 - 2:30 PM

Course Description:

Lighting requires the unique design skill of manipulating the eye through dark and light spaces and providing night compositions. This seminar provides the basics of landscape lighting from a designer's point of view. The course highlights core concepts of aesthetics of composition with regards to safety, pedestrian circulation and security for the home. Understanding how the eye functions as light levels change is key to a successful lighting design. Techniques to create several lighting effects will be explained, including techniques to minimize effects to the dark sky. The process of lighting design from defining the lighting program and site inventory to conceptual design and design documentation will be reviewed, as well as common lighting mistakes.
