Understanding how the eye functions as light levels change is critical to successful lighting design. In this course, students learn the unique lighting design skills of manipulating the eye through dark and light spaces and creating safe night spaces and compositions. The course highlights basic light concepts, such as the lighting vocabulary; how the eye and brain function to provide vision: how we see light and how it affects what we "see"; and how to quantify color for lighting design. The course covers various exterior lighting applications for roadways, sports lighting, retail/commercial, structures, parking lots, building exteriors, landscapes and residential design.
