This course encourages students to produce creative, detailed lighting design solutions for commercial spaces. Emphasis will be on concepts for lighting, practical applications, specifications and methods to enhance the experience of interior environments. Students will create reflected ceiling plans that incorporate advanced lighting solutions and ceiling details. Photometry will be examined and applied to interior spaces for evaluation, discussion and implementation.
