Architectural lighting can add tremendous aesthetic value in building projects. Designers and owners should expect that the lighting system aesthetics will endure for decades. But in many cases, poor structural design and cost-cutting material choices can result in rapid degradation in lighting system aesthetics. This one-hour course reviews the luminaire design factors that impact aesthetic durability including structural design, luminaire finishes, lens materials and LED system components.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
• Understand the importance of choosing lighting solutions with durable aesthetics
• Identify structural considerations that influence long-term aesthetics
• Identify luminaire designs that preserve surface aesthetics, including housings and lenses
• Identify light source characteristics that impact luminaire aesthetics over time
All OCL presenters have been trained on CES guidelines and presentation skills. In addition, all presenters have extensive industry experience and receive ongoing training in the science of lighting and best practices.
