Lighting – By Design is an elective course intended for undergraduate students delivered by the faculty in the MFA Lighting Design program to introduce design students to the delicate balance between art and science in lighting design. Organized in a modular format, students will discover how to measure light and color, how to determine the most important factors in designing lighting systems, how to lay out a lighting system, the characteristics and performance of light source and fixture technologies, and the integration of daylighting with electric lighting and controls. Each module will incorporate hands-on activities to enhance student understanding, and make use of the instrumentation and equipment available through the Light and Energy Lab in the School of Constructed Environments. This studio elective will provide opportunities to discover how light can be used to create and transform our environment and reveal form and material properties."
