    image
    About this Course

    The IES offers Educational Webinars throughout the year, purposefully spanning a broad range of topics and speaker expertise. Layers of Light: Residential & Hospitality was a live webinar, now available as an archived webinar and CEU course.

    Description: Lighting plays a critical role in fostering safety, security, and a sense of welcome to residential and hospitality projects, especially after the sun goes down. Learn how historical and psychological context can inform layered and adaptable lighting design solutions for lobbies, reception areas, restaurants, and residential living spaces that result in happier humans and more dramatic architecture.

    Learning Objectives:

    By the end of this course learners will be able to...

    1. Discover the historical and psychological implications of the layers of light in hospitality spaces. 
    2. Investigate the theory behind the five promises embedded in the layers of light; light for doing, knowing, feeling, changing, and story. 
    3. Explore the way properties of light contribute to spaces that are welcoming, comforting and relaxing. 
    4. Learn to discuss the interrelationship of the layers of light, and communicate the value of each. 

    David K. Warfel

    Lighting Designer

    David K. Warfel is an overly sensitive, marginally materialistic, pseudo-tree-hugging Midwestern farm boy turned lighting designer. His hyper-sensitivity means he dims everything including his dashboard, and his marginal materialism means he loves high quality light fixtures, elegant controls, and French cuffs. He calms his enviro-consciousness by using energy-saving lighting solutions and wearing hiking shoes to work, and is always ready to roll up his literal shirt sleeves to solve client problems with baling wire and duct tape (although now he prefers gaffers tape). He uses the title “Convergence Designer” since he cannot decide what he wants to be if he ever grows up (unlikely at this point), and practices at the overlap of architectural and performance lighting. He’s as surprised as you are by the list of credits to his name that range from New York’s Carnegie Hall to the Las Vegas’ Luxor and MGM Grand casinos, from Chicago’s Hyde Park Arts Center and Museum of Science and Industry to residential and hospitality projects in Virginia, Illinois, Wisconsin, Nevada, Oregon, California, and Arizona. He has worked with award-winning firms Schuler Shook and CharterSills, and weathered the recession safely cloistered as the head of lighting design at the University of Illinois. David’s work has been featured in Lighting & Sound America, Lighting Australia, Live Design, and Theatrical Design & Technology, but he is usually reading Inspector Gamache novels or other similar educational materials.

  • Lighting for Horticulture

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    This webinar takes an in depth look into how plants respond to light and what considerations shape successful horticultural lighting design solutions.

    image
    About this Course

    The IES offers Educational Webinars throughout the year, purposefully spanning a broad range of topics and speaker expertise. Lighting for Horticulture was a live webinar, now available as an archived webinar and CEU course.

    Description: Humans see visible light; plants perceive and respond to electromagnetic radiation. For all that we have learned and know about lighting design for architectural and roadway applications, surprisingly little of this is relevant to horticultural lighting design. Greenhouses and vertical farms may look like the proverbial “empty rectangular box” for which calculations using the Lumen Method might be sufficient, but plants are much more sophisticated than they first appear. Topics of interest include daily light integrals, short- and long-day plants, shade avoidance syndrome (SAS), red to far-red ratios (R:FR), ultraviolet resistance, photopigments (chlorophylls, phytochromes, cryptochromes, phototropins, and UVR8), photosynthesis and photomorphogenesis, secondary metabolites … the list goes on. Perhaps surprisingly, what lighting designers can bring to the conversation is knowledge of climate-based annual daylight availability. Horticultural lighting design is a fascinating and ongoing discussion between lighting designers, luminaire manufacturers, horticulturists, and floriculturists. 

    Learning Objectives:

    By the end of this course learners will be able to...

    1. Demonstrate the similarities and differences in the application of light for people and plants.   
    2. Learn some nuances about light's role in photosynthesis.
    3. Learn how specific spectrum ranges within optical radiation, but outside the visible spectrum, impact photo-biological processes. 
    4. Explore the concepts of the day in the life of a plant: Daily Light Integral, Photoperiod, and Circadian Rhythms.
