A SOCIAL HISTORY OF LIGHT AND LIGHTING
A SOCIAL HISTORY OF LIGHT AND LIGHTING
David DiLaura, Acuity Brands Lighting, Boulder, CO USA

Lighting has helped determine when and how we work and play. It has expanded our chance at education, brought us knowledge and helped us to harness technology. Lighting has been woven into the very fabric of civilization's infrastructure and become an industry unto itself. Lighting has given us a chance to be dangerous, affecting the environment and even our own health. This seminar will explore these and other ways in which lighting was and still is a social issue. Attendees will learn the principal aspects of lighting's social history and see how their professional work shapes and determines, in part, society's future.

Chip Israel, FIALD, Lighting Design Alliance, Long Beach, CA USA
This session will provide practical solutions and recommendations to minimize the "starving artist" phenomenon so common in the design community. Cash flow and cash in your pocket are the ultimate goal for survival and success; the more a designer has of both, the improved chances for his or her survival. Mr. Israel will discuss issues specific to design practices, including real estate, managing taxes, and more. This interactive session will be appropriate for current and potential business owners, as well as for students, who too often get no business education.

Tad Trylski, Associate IALD, Light Bureau, London, UK
How can that one fixture can be visibly brighter than another, even though its data sheet states a lower output? Comparing two light sources, how can the one with lower CRI give better color discrimination? As the LED "gold-rush" continues, the metrics are becoming more complex and open to interpretation. This presentation collates evidence and research to challenge popular understanding – or misunderstanding – of some of the most fashionable performance indicators in lighting specification, including illuminance, color temperature, beam angles, LOR, CRI, MacAdam's ellipses and even the SI unit of light itself, the candela.

Without strong mentorship, it is nearly impossible for an emerging lighting designer to develop into a polished, well-rounded professional. Whether a designer comes from an education in theatre, engineering or architecture, there is plenty left to learn about the art, science and business of lighting. We will explore the needs and challenges associated with mentoring in the lighting community, examine successful traditional and non-traditional mentoring programs from associated industries and discuss ways that mentoring could be effectively implemented in the lighting community to develop tomorrow's leaders.

LIGHT AND HUMAN HEALTH
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. Published scientific research has confirmed that light is a potent stimulus that regulates human circadian, neuroendocrine and neurobehavioral physiology. Consequently, light can profoundly influence human health and wellbeing. This emergent science provides the basis for major changes in future architectural lighting strategies.

FOLLOWING THE SUN [45 MINUTES]
Gustavo Avilés, IALD, Lighteam, Mexico City, Mexico
When we approach light or lighting, there is a feeling of "something missing." What is the meaning of working with light? Knowledge obtained solely from rational efforts forms a value system accounting for measurable material facts. Looking back to solar cultures that use sunlight as a reference of time and space and as a carrier of spiritual messages, we can realize the abstract power of light. In this session, we will reflect upon these issues, work to open our attention to other forms of knowledge, unify knowledge and visual practice, and give sense and feeling to our perceptions of light.

LIGHTING POWERS OF TEN: METHODOLOGY FOR DIFFERENT SCALES OF DESIGN
LIGHTING POWERS OF TEN: METHODOLOGY FOR DIFFERENT SCALES OF DESIGN
Enrique Peiniger, IALD, Office for Visual Interaction, New York, NY USA
The Powers of Ten is a design methodology inspired by design icons Charles and Ray Eames and their groundbreaking work in communicating the science behind the Powers of Ten as related to the universe. Translating this idea to the architectural lighting design field, the Lighting Powers of Ten is the basis of a unique design logic that utilizes scaled-based analysis to develop integrated lighting design solutions at every design stage. Mr. Peiniger will share this philosophy and help participants to develop strategic design logic and working methods to bring order to a seemingly chaotic design process.

POST OCCUPANCY: WHY AND HOW TO EVALUATE USER EXPERIENCES
Kevan Shaw, IALD, KSLD, Edinburgh, Scotland
Lighting design is about delivering quality lighting. While we have tools that can measure the quantity of light, this does not tell us whether a design is delivering quality. It is rare to get the opportunity to do a formal Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) of a project – yet, with recent changes to lighting technology it is more important than ever that we do this. This session will share existing methods for POE studies, posit a new method for evaluating the user experience, and provide the basis of a toolkit that practicing designers and students can use in their own POE studies.

SPEC IT FORWARD
SPEC IT FORWARD
Conor Sampson, CS Design, Westmount, QC Canada
Howard Yaphe, Axis Lighting, Montréal, QC Canada
Moderator: Andrew MacKinnon, IALD, Gabriel MacKinnon, Ottawa, ON Canada
New luminaire and control technologies undergo quick and important changes of their optical, efficacy and economic performance. However, construction of buildings can represent a longer process, sometimes taking years. How is it possible to design and optimize lighting today for installations that will occur in a later time frame? How can manufacturers make their products evolve and contribute to the performance of older, active specifications? This demonstration, showing both the point of view of a lighting designer and a manufacturer, will highlight how it is possible to "spec forward" an evolving solution to have the latest technology without having to completely rethink the lighting and the space.

ENERGY CODES: OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES
ENERGY CODES : OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES
Peter Raynham, The Bartlett School of Graduate Studies, London, UK
Glenn Heinmiller, IALD, Lam Partners, Cambridge, MA USA

Marty Salzberg, IALD, Cline Bettridge Bernstein, New York, NY USA

Join three lighting experts, from two sides of the Atlantic, to explore the impact of energy and building codes on lighting, lighting design and design practice. Glenn Heinmiller, IALD; Peter Raynham; and Marty Salzberg, IALD, will discuss the "alphabet soup" of modern energy codes: "Part L", "ASHRAE/IES 90.1", "IECC" and others. The session aims to fly above the detail of specific code provisions and explore the ways in which codes form both limits and opportunities for professional lighting designers. Bring your code-related issues to discuss: the session will feature lively interchange among the panelists and between panelists and audience.

Key Questions:

  • Which aspects of codes cause the most problems?
  • Where do you see opportunities to simplify codes?
  • Share examples of steps you have taken to address code problems.
  • Share examples of codes as a business opportunity and how that has worked out.
