HOU > Lighting Design (SFP) > Lighting Design – THEMATIC UNITS

SFP50: ART, LIGHT, AND PSYCHOLOGY OF PERCEPTION

Module code: SFP50

ECTS Credit Points: 20

Module Type: Compulsory

Year: 1st

Language: Greek

Module Outline

Module general description: This course module has a dual objective. First, it attempts to communicate the basic properties of natural and artificial lighting. Secondly, it aims to collect the synthetic criteria in order to achieve a certain desired expression, through the lighting. These criteria are organized both through the awareness of the lighting effects on the psychology of the visitor or the inhabitant of a space, and through the analysis of artworks. The interpretation of the visual perception, through the historical consideration of light in art and architecture, is the main methodological axis of this thematic unit.

Therefore, the purpose of the unit is to collect the criteria, aesthetic and functional, which are organize the thinking around the space and the objects, as well as to sharpen the perception, so that we can use these criteria in design, with the light as a tool.

Learning Outcomes:

Students will be able to:

  • Know the basic concepts regarding the properties of natural and artificial light.
  • Understand the different methods and tools of light management available to them.
  • Handle the various capabilities of light in fields such as architecture, interior design, theater, photography, etc.
  • Understand the psychological properties of light, i.e. how light influences humans in different conditions.
  • Know the methods of synthesis to achieve artistic expressional goals in all of the aforementioned fields.
  • Understand the basic concepts of photometry, i.e., the methods of measuring and correlating the qualitative and quantitative properties of light

Subjects covered:

  • Visual communication
  • Basic Principles of visual education and signification
  • History of light in art and architecture
  • Psychology of visual perception

Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites for this course.

Evaluation: Students are assigned to submit four (4) written assignments during the academic year. The average grade of the four (4) written assignments, weighted at 30%, is taken into consideration for the calculation of the final grade. The grade of written assignments is activated only with a score equal to or above the pass level (≥5) in the final or resit exams.

The grade of the final or the resit exams shall be weighted at 70 % for the calculation of the final grade.

Students have the right to participate in the final/resit exams if (a) at least 50% of the potentially excellent grade has been obtained when adding the total of the four (4) assignments and (b) at least three (3) of the four (4) written assignments have been submitted.

SFP51: GENERAL PRINCIPLES OF LIGHTING AND PHYSIOLOGY OF VISUAL PERCEPTION

Module code: SFP51

ECTS Credit Points: 20

Module Type: Compulsory

Year: 1st

Language: Greek

Module Outline

Module general description: The main objective of the Course Module (C.M.) is for students to get acquainted with the Basic Principles of Light and the Physiology of Visual Perception. The C.M. SFP 51 consists of six thematic sub-units, (1) Principles of photometry – Photometric quantities and units, (2) Visual perception, (3) Nature of color and color perception – Principles of Colorimetry, (4) Natural light basics, sun lighting and shading of buildings, (5) Principles of human centric lighting, (6) Light and shadow, light and space.

Photometry is a key tool for the study of light and lighting design. Students will thoroughly study the principles, the quantities, the instruments and units of light measurements. Furthermore, they will get familiar with the visual system, physiology and the mechanisms of visual perception, they will study color in its physical, psychophysical and colorimetric dimensions, they will look back on the perceptions of light and shadow over time and they will be introduced in architectural lighting design principles and practice.

In addition, they will be using the tools of photometry to approach fundamental considerations in human centric lighting design, exploring lighting solutions that consider lighting quality with reference to human vision and performance on visual tasks, while simultaneously incorporating new insights about the non visual effects of light.

They will learn to deal with light as a means of composition or expression of meaning or aesthetics or creating an atmosphere addressed to the emotion (in psychology), drawing on knowledge about the function and mechanisms of visual perception and considering how to use measurements to manage the qualities of light in relation to visual perception.

The ultimate goal is for students to be able to handle the various possibilities of light in fields such as architecture, interior design, theater, cinema, analyze the requirements of a lighting project and calculate visual comfort conditions through the threefold scheme: light, space and human.

Learning Outcomes:

Upon completion of the module, the student will:

  • be acquainted with the nature of light and the basic principles of radiometry and photometry, what a black body is and its applications, the radiometric and photometric quantities, units, and the primary measuring devices of photometry.
  • understand basic concepts regarding the properties of natural and artificial lighting.
  • have sufficient knowledge of the ways in which light affects people and will therefore be familiar with the principles of human-centric lighting.
  • have the theoretical background and know how to use solar trajectory diagrams to determine the natural lighting/shading of buildings
  • have acquired a basic understanding of physiology, in terms of the characteristics and functional principles of human vision. He/she will have an understanding of the mechanisms of reception and processing of visual information through which perception is accomplished.
