Structured design

Presentation date: 26. October
Presentation time: 12:15

The speaker will explain her approach to practice-orientated learning in lighting studies. The process of learning by doing by carrying out lighting surveys, exchanging information with the client and fellow members of the design team and then building daylight models to test and evaluate concepts is invaluable to the process of preparing a good lighting design plan. Structured design – which includes the process of model construction and site investigation – can help solve design problems and minimize environmental damage.
