Course Synopsis

Lighting design is a process. It is the process of integrating light into the fabric of architecture. Regardless of the space to be lighted—a bank, a church, an office, a gallery, a restaurant, a store, a classroom—and regardless of the light sources available for use, the process is always the same. The architectural lighting design process produces a space where the casual observer is unaware of the mechanics of light production; he perceives only a comfortable environment that supports his activities and enhances his wellbeing. With practice, the Interior designer learns to apply this process in ways that go even further, producing environments, spaces that stimulate the mind and inspire the spirit.
