This session will explore why lighting design in outdoor spaces needs to take into consideration not only human activities but also the context of pedestrian spaces, among them the architecture, changes based on day to night, and adjacencies to the space. This CEU will discuss the hierarchy of design elements to consider when lighting outdoor spaces for people and how they live, learn, work, care, play, and travel. In addition, it will also explore the varying types of lighting zones, the applications of those zones, and the amount of light to be used within those lighting zones.
At the end of this program, participants will know:
• Understand the context of pedestrian spaces and how that helps to determine how a designer approaches lighting those pedestrian spaces.
• Understand the hierarchy of design elements to consider when lighting outdoor spaces for people.
• Understand what sky glow and light trespass is and how it impacts the environment that is being lit.
• Understand what light zones and land zones are and how these criteria can be used in the absence of lighting ordinances.
• Define each of the lighting zones and the amount of light that should be used within each setting.
