LIGHT AND HUMAN HEALTH
George Brainard, PhD, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA USA
In the art and science of architectural lighting, four major traditional objectives have been to provide light that: 1) is optimum for visual performance; 2) is visually comfortable; 3) permits aesthetic appreciation of the space; and 4) conserves energy.

Consequently, light can profoundly influence human health and wellbeing. This emergent science provides the basis for major changes in future architectural lighting strategies.
