From sunrise to sunset, light is something that we sometimes take for granted. We work to optimize the design of today’s buildings to allow ample daylight in, but still rely on electric lighting for a significant portion of our lighting needs. Our relationship with light has evolved over time and we increasingly recognize its importance in supporting our ability to cope with stress, stay alert, improve cognition, and even improve sleep patterns. This presentation will discuss the health benefits of light, the “what, why and how” of good lighting design, and provide some insight into improving the design process to fully realize the potential of good lighting design.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the necessity to consider lighting design in projects to promote health and well-being
  • Explore the strategies for good lighting design and the requirements set forth by the WELL Building Standard
  • Discuss the multiple industry interpretations of circadian lighting design and how the WELL Building Standard evaluates it
  • Discuss the process of engagement with light modeling including tips for success

Series Presenters:

  • Carina Clark, IIDA, EDAC, LEED AP BD+C, WELL Faculty, HED
  • John Mlade, LFA, WELL Faculty, LEED Fellow, WSP | Built Ecology
