The module covers aspects of designing with light, with focus on the understanding and practical application of aesthetic, functional, legislative and environmental design parameters in different contexts.
The module will enable the student to acquire theoretical and applied knowledge of light in different context with emphasis on its qualitative aspects; to see, to understand, to be inspired, to design with light and to communicate light in a conceptual framework.
The objectives are realized by presenting scientific methods and tools in a case-based framework and through the students’ active participation in workshops and assignments to deepen an understanding of the various design contexts and opportunities for the experience, knowledge and application of light.
The module will develop students’ ability to create design solutions in different scales and areas of application, through the combination of research-based theory with examples from practice and exercises through small exercises.
