Light for Satisfaction dives into lighting as a key factor of wellness. Two current building industry trends—human health and wellness and transparency—are compelling designers to gain a better understanding of daylighting, the impact of light on our circadian rhythms, and related tools available to designers. This course will explore a few of the building standards that take a deeper dive into lighting as it connects to the human being, as well as technology and strategies that allow designers to better mimic the 24-hour circadian clock within the built environment.
