This three-credit course builds on the fundamentals taught in Architectural Lighting I with a more detailed look at how technical information about lighting systems can be used for design concepts and analyses. Advanced design practices, metrics, and common software tools for addressing human responses to light are explained and used throughout the course. The course provides an examination of human responses to daylighting and views in buildings. It describes the latest research and design standards for visual effects of light such as color rendering, glare, and flicker; and non-visual responses to light such as circadian rhythms and acute alerting effects. The course concludes by considering case studies of various project types where the principles covered can be applied to addressing a holistic set of human responses to lighting.
