The Art and Technology of Lighting

Lighting uniquely blends art and science through the use of electronic and mechanical controls. This program offers a broad selection of Lighting courses addressing design, controls, and how light can be manipulated through reflection, color temperature, dimming, lenses, IoT, and much more. Additionally, courses may be included that involve the use of natural light for a variety of purposes through daylight harvesting, fenestrations, filters, lenses, shades, films, and interlocking woven coils, textiles, plastics, and metals. Additionally, light components which may impact heat load, solar heat collection, or energy generation and storage, may also be located here.

Healthcare Lighting

Program: The Art and Technology of Lighting

This course is a high-density orientation to lighting considerations and methods in the healthcare environment. Topics will include application situations, impacted populations, design methods, and a review and critique of examples of successful and less-than-successful healthcare lighting designs.

Introduction to Exterior and Facade Lighting

Program: The Art and Technology of Lighting

This course will explore the use of exterior lighting to illuminate building facades, landscapes, pathways, plazas, and points of interest, like statues. Popular techniques (moonlighting, wallwashing, grazing, etc.) will be defined and the performance of various lighting fixtures will be compared to help designers identify the fixtures best-suited for particular applications. Important considerations including energy codes, dark sky criteria, and occupant safety will be addressed. The renovation of the exterior lighting at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, designed by Ardra Zinkon, will be profiled.
