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.
WHAT YOU WILL GAIN:
1. Appreciate the link between the overall project goals and the ultimate lighting layout
2. Grasp what it means to light with intention
3. Understand the critical stages where lighting design fits into the overall project design process.
