Light Color Health and Architectural Lighting

July 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

With USAI Lighting


Course Description

Architectural Lighting:  Light is used to highlight the aesthetics of a space with care given to visual comfort and visual performance needs.  Light also affects human health.  It is a stimulus for regulating circadian rhythms, behavior, and other health functions.  This course details the growing body of research connecting light, the receptors in our eye (the non-visual system) to many health functions.  These human health aspects include circadian regulation, melatonin production, and neurotransmitter functions in the brain.

As lighting technology improves (with color temperature control, for example) and as the understanding of light and health improves, this will have a profound effect on architectural lighting design.  This course will show recent beta-test lighting projects promoting “human centric” lighting, as well as recent lighting projects where color control was used for promoting health, behavior, or productivity.
