Understanding how the eye functions as light levels change is key to a successful lighting design. Students will learn how lighting is a unique design skill of manipulating the eye through dark and light spaces and providing interesting and effective night compositions. The process of lighting design from defining the lighting program and site inventory to conceptual design will be provided. The course highlights core design concepts such as designing with respect for the dark sky; addressing safety for pedestrian circulation and security for the home; the fundamentals of selecting low voltage lighting components; and knowledge of lighting design skills.
