Light brings both necessity and nuance to the built environment, creating functional spaces and conjuring apparitions in perception, scale, time and sensory impulses.  Developing a working knowledge of lighting design while seeking light as a transformative element, students will create lighting design / documentation and build light fixtures.

Outcome 1: Immersion in luminance as a spatial opportunist.

Outcome 2: Competency in principles of light, color theory, luminaire typologies, lighting calculations, energy efficiency and re-lamping techniques (ASHRAE Standards).

Outcome 3: Identify / classify luminaire / lighting types, luminance categories.

Outcome 4: Manipulation and integration of lighting technology and spatial dynamics.

Outcome 5: Model-making and hands-on experience building a light fixture.
