This presentation discusses a number of design trends that are currently shaping the industry and promising to redefine the role of lighting as we know it. New technologies are making dimensions such as color and dynamic behavior over time viable for main-stream lighting, and that constitutes exponential change. This presentation explores a few of the dimensions that appear to be gaining traction, and attempts to illuminate some of the reasoning behind their development. Implications to the user experience are discussed, along with the inadequacy of present lighting metrics.
Discover ways in which emerging technologies are being applied to affect new capabilities in lighting
Learn how a rich palette of dark architectural colors (including gray) may be produced with light
Learn how dynamic lighting systems can be coordinated to maintain constancy of illuminance and color at task surfaces
Learn how control systems and metrics must adapt to keep pace with a rapidly changing industry

Can safety and stargazing coexist? Can a security light expose a trespasser without creating light trespass? Designers today are faced with a challenge of balancing best practices in security lighting without flooding the neighbors with light, all while maintaining a view of our night's sky. While the Model Lighting Ordinance (MLO) restricts light where it is not needed, guidelines for security lighting are often in contradiction. The seminar will cover current practices for Dark Skies and security lighting, challenges with adaptation, and the use of controls to bridge the gap.
Review current lighting practices to meet the Model Lighting Ordinance (MLO).
Review current security lighting practices.
Understand the benefit of controls for security lighting.
Consider adaptation when moving from bright interiors to dark exteriors, and from a bright property to an adjacent dark sidewalk.
