Where the magic happens - Integrating natural and artificial light

Extraordinary spaces arise from the symbiosis between space and light. For centuries, daylight was the only means available to provide spaces with illumination. Since the advent of artificial lighting and the recent rapid advances in development of lighting technologies, however, the interplay of light - both artificial and natural - has succeeded in ushering in unique possibilities for the transformation of architectural spaces. Andreas Schulz, CEO at Licht Kunst Licht, will present a selection of the studio's award-winning designs which have successfully harnessed the integration of artificial and natural lighting to create unique, inspiring, poetical and aesthetically beautiful experiences.

IALD India Light Workshops: model for leadership development and training

IALD India Light Workshops were a series of hands-on experiential learning events primarily intended to establish the IALD's then newest region - IALD India. Rapid growth in the Indian lighting industry created the need for an international organisation like the IALD. This lecture describes how these workshops facilitated execution of the IALD's strategy through building alignment, winning mindshare and growing capabilities of others e.g. inculcating leadership qualities, including communication, ability to motivate others, and management.

What Kind of Lighting is Good for Your Health? - Lies and Truth about Conventional Thinking on Health and Lighting

Researches have been conducted for a long time on the impact of lighting on the human body. Are the research results drawn still effective today? As LED becomes the standard light source, what are the issues that we must consider anew in relation to our health? In short, what kind of lighting is appropriate for houses? The expert will teach us the latest information on health and lighting.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) - A tool for lighting calculations and documentation

Lighting design is a creative and complex process involving ideation, interpretation, visualisation, collaboration, coordination, project management and facilitation. Ever wondered how you could streamline your creative design process, minimising effort and maximise your output while reducing re-iterations of design? Are you curious to know how your lighting design in the BIM environment could put you ahead of the curve and get you some extra bonuses of output that could save your time, effort and money? We would like to share with you some insights and learnings on how your design process in BIM could facilitate validating a brief, working with an ever-changing architectural vision that could be kept updated in a simplistic way. Giving you tools to keep your design current through design iterations and a budget that is dynamic that is quickly updated to suit design changes and where your lighting calculations and documentation could be done simultaneously dramatically reducing your documentation time.

SDGs and Lighting: A world we hope to achieve in 2030 and the role of lighting

UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a blueprint of a society that we hope to pass to the next generation in 2030. The goals envisage a world where all lives can enjoy physical, social and mental well-being, beyond meeting people's economic needs and achieving environmental sustainabiity. The session will discuss the role of lighting in SDGs, with an emphasis on the linkage between various social agenda.

How to grow a lighting design community from ground zero? Some observations from the journey in Turkey.

I'm the editor of Professional Lighting Design Magazine in Turkey. And as a company, we have been publishing PLD Turkey since 2005. When we started, there were 0 - zero - independent lighting design offices. The lighting design market was dominated by distributors and manufacturers. The first independent lighting design practice opened one year later in 2006. And now, 12 years later, there are 16 lighting design offices and more than 50 lighting design professionals in Turkey. Not bad numbers for that kind of a small time. How did it happen? It would be unfair to get all the credits but fair to say that PLD Turkey played a crucial role in the process of making lighting design a viable profession. As the person championing and reporting on that transformation, I'd like to share the very real story of this journey, hoping that someone else can take the inspiration and transform the profession in their own homeland.

The future of lighting design and luminance-based metrics

As software such as DIAlux has become easier to use, the next challenge in lighting simulation will be how to connect the simulation results that have been quantified or visualized with people's senses. The first thing needed to achieve this is an index for evaluating sense of brightness. The "shift from illuminance-based design to luminance-based design," which is the subject of research in multiple quarters, will likely provide strong hints in that regard. In this session, Dr. Yoshizawa will give an overview of the frontiers in this field of research before delving further into how it can be used in lighting design.

Collaborative Design: The limits and opportunities for a best practice of lighting design in a multicultural context

The presentation reviews the importance of cultural and geographic references for the development of a lighting design project in a globalized world where more than ever collaborations between architects, designers and local suppliers has expanded over the borders of the single country. In particular, the presentation would like to focus in under development countries design approach, having a case study based in Bangalore, India designed by the author and IvoryEdge IoT Solution Provider to illustrate this multi-disciplinary and cultural background cooperation. It departs from a personal experience, being a Italo-Brazilian lighting designer, that have worked in Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, Brazil and most recently in India to explores what are real difficulties and advantages for the development and success of a project from the lighting designer point of view working overseas.

Responsible Lighting: New Ethics to Balance our New Powers

The traditional goals of lighting designers have been to make buildings attractive and to help people see well. We are now obligated to balance our awareness of human health, social welfare, and environmental impacts with visual aesthetics and practical functionality. Greater responsibilities mean new ethical concerns for the powerful practice of lighting design. This session will explore those critical questions to help define new ethics for the evolving and influential role of the professional lighting designer.

A Three-level System for Nightscape Management in Large Scale Cities
Case Study: Tehran

The evidences shows common lighting master plan cannot be an accurate response to large scale cities' nightscape managing issues such as Tehran. This paper focuses on the procedure and content of a creative lighting planning system which consists of three levels, each leading to an output which supports the next level. In other words, this system has a hierarchy approach which considers the cityscape as a whole, determines the structure and distinctive features of the nightscape and then defines the lighting plans and projects on the lower levels to back the higher level. The main components of this three-level plan are Macro-level, Meso-level, Micro-level.

Regional revitalization and Lighting, ~Case study of "Approach to using experts"~

In the area of regional revitalization and town planning, it is important to use personnel who will act as "command towers" and diverse experts in the implementation of projects. In this seminar, using the case study of the hot springs resort town of Nagato Yumoto Onsen, which is undertaking a social experiment in large-scale urban remodeling, the development and use of landscape guidelines, and structural organization, the speaker will discuss their methods, such as roles, processes, and administration, from the government's standpoint. He will also examine "the role of light" in both its tangible and intangible aspects.

Representing light-what lighting designers can learn from arts

The advent of the electric light triggered also the arts field and many great artists started representing light, overarching different artistic styles. From late 19th Century to today, artists have showed us many ways of creating interesting and intriguing atmospheres and different ways of representing the artificial light source. This lecture will take an academic approach in understanding the main features connected to the representation of light and lighting in a scene. We'll travel through time to connect to works of artists long gone and bridge to the work that lighting designers do today.
