ABOUT THE SESSION

Many built environments have created unnatural conditions for occupants. Research shows that poor illumination of occupied space can contribute to the disruption of natural cycles. Solid-state lighting (LED) and “nature-emulating design” can transform architecture and enhance the human experience in occupied environments. Explore ways of applying Circadian Balanced Illumination™, Biophilic Design and WELL Building lighting principles to invigorate the human condition and benefit our cognition, health and well-being.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • How has natural light entrained our circadian rhythms? Understand how light has affected our biology throughout evolution.
  • Learn how the retina processes light, both visually and biologically, for different bodily functions.
  • Learn how light can be used or misused in assisting or interfering with our wellbeing, such as attentiveness and sleeping patterns.
  • Explore how lighting and biophilic designs can improve the health and wellbeing of people in the built environment.
