Light as Object: Philosophical Importance of Aesthetics
In recent years, various practicing architects and artists have begun implementing concepts of a new philosophical movement, Object-Oriented Ontology (OOO), into their thinking. Referencing work by Prof. Graham Harman, founder of OOO, this program explores why lighting design must engage in philosophical conversation and how designers are uniquely situated to lead that charge. Attendees will learn introductory OOO terms and review several case studies to recognize the inherent relationship between architecture, light, and philosophy. The goal is to expand our contemporary understanding of light and improve design theory; if light is an object itself, we ought to explore how this may challenge our assumptions and approach to design.

Lighting to counteract the Hunt Effect
Human color perceptions vary with light level. Objects appear less colorful at low light levels than at high light levels—a visual phenomenon known as the Hunt Effect. The Hunt Effect is a primal visual phenomenon. Anyone who has seen a sunset has experienced the environment become duller as the sun dips below the horizon—technically speaking, object colorfulness decreases with decreasing illuminance. Despite the many lighting applications where low light levels are common and color rendition is important, current lighting solutions do not account for the human visual system's change in color sensitivity as a function of light level. We will discuss how LEDs can be tuned to overcome the human loss of visual sensitivity at low light levels and provide a live demonstration.

Evaluating Colour Metrics of White Led's While Dimming
Studying potential colour shifts in White LED’s while dimming in order to understand the measured aspects of correlated colour temperature (CCT) and other colour metrics.
The lighting industry relies on metrics to report, evaluate and predict how a fixture is going to perform. The general assumption and conventional wisdom is that LEDs do not change in CCT when dimmed unless they are warm-dim technology. Is this an assumption or reality? Information regarding CCT and other properties like SPD, CRI and CIE chromaticity coordinate values of LEDs, when they are dimmed, is not readily available. This study focuses on evaluating white LED’s when dimmed by evaluating the measured changes in advanced metrics like the TM-30, CIE chromaticity and CRI for different sources.

Improved System for Evaluating and Specifying the Chromaticity of Light Sources
This presentation will discuss a proposal to update the way chromaticity and its derivatives, like CCT and Duv, are calculated, modernizing the framework to better account for metameric mismatch and improve the performance of architectural lighting systems. The proposal includes employing the CIE 2015 10° color matching functions (CMFs) to create a new uniform chromaticity scale (UCS) diagram (s, t), adjusted measures for white light quantification (CCTst and Dst), and redefined nominal classification quadrangles. The presentation will demonstrate how these changes improve average matches for the color appearance of light. It will also cover how the characterizations of products would change if the improved system is implemented and recommended for use.

Characterizing the color rendition performance of multi-primary LED lighting systems
Multi-primary (color tunable) LED systems offer a new capability for a user or specifier to easily adjust the spectrum of a light source to meet different performance needs. The capabilities of such systems are not all equal, however. The number of different LEDs and their characteristics, as well control system with which they're paired, can all influence the range of performance that can be delivered. This presentation explores ways to calculate and characterize the range of color rendition that can be delivered by different multi-primary LED systems. Measuring color rendition variability will enable manufacturing and specification of high-performance and versatile products.

Green Light Transient Effect necessitates replacing the Melanopic sensitivity function of Equivalent Melanopic Lux
The Melanopic sensitivity function shows that green color light has similar Melanopic response as blue color light, which is derived from measuring the Calcium responses of 1-minute light exposure on HEK 239 cells. However, the Melanopic response of green color light on Suprachiasmatic Nucleus (circadian clock) will drop 88% in the log scale after 4-hour light exposure, and this phenomenon is called Green Light Transient Effect. Because WELL Building Standard Feature 54 specifies at least 4 hours light exposure of Equivalent Melanopic Lux above 200 in daytime, the incorporation of Green Light Transient Effect necessitates replacing the Melanopic sensitivity function.

Lighting Design as Was, Is, and Will Be
As our industry advances, the tenets of visual performance and the desire for energy efficiency, ease of maintenance and economy of construction will remain. We will see designing for health added to our design processes. This means providing circadian supportive environments, but it also means limiting flicker, controlling glare, and providing interesting environments that encourage occupants to take the stairs instead of elevators or meander and explore amenity areas. Lighting has an innate way of turning something you look at into something you feel. Our understanding of light will need to expand to include visual, psychological, emotional, and physiological effects. While this is an exciting new frontier for the lighting industry, it will not impact our industry nearly as much as the proliferation of lighting products and rendering software.

For years we have designed for visual performance using the IES Handbook and Recommended Practices to know what technical measures were needed for task performance. These documents also describe the many factors outside of horizontal illuminance tables that contribute to quality lighting designs. We are cognizant of psychological impacts and that light can envelop occupants to more fully experience the built environment. Now we are adding the ability to support circadian rhythms to our performance goals, and adding more metrics to better define color quality.

Energy efficiency has traditionally been improved upon by equipment manufacturers and utilizing task-ambient design solutions. With equipment energy consumption so low now, controls are becoming the big impact player. Because of the lack of standardization in product offerings, there are numerous types of LED modules and numerous types of control technologies, and they are not all inter-compatible. It is not possible to specify lighting today without also specifying the controls.

While LED have greatly reduced the maintenance needs for lighting, they have not eliminated it. Maintenance of lighting systems has become non-standardized and non-intuitive; what are you doing as a designer to assure your client has a lighting solution that will last the life of the building?
Our standard equipment tool box has been replaced by a seemingly limitless amount of luminaires and control technologies available for sale today. How do write a three name competitive bid when every product is different? How do we assure that the contractor accurately places products that look identical but have different LED modules or drivers?

We will step through what design progression used to look like, what it looks like today, and what it may look like in the future.
We will then review what this means for how we write our contracts, define our scope of services, produce construction documentation, and provide construction field services.

So, Who Figures This Out? Lighting Design, Controls, and Integration
In this presentation a Lighting Designer and a Controls Integrator discuss the evolving world of lighting and controls.

Achieving the intent and full functionality of modern lighting designs requires a much higher level of control than systems of the past. Just meeting basic energy codes generally requires some level of switching and/ or dimming control which often has to be integrated with sensors or other building systems. Not to mention the array of control protocols and devices which come into play when we start incorporating color-changing fixtures, moving lights, pixel mapping, and other more “theatrical” elements into our designs.

Topics will include the nature of Lighting Design in this climate of advance controls, particularly interactive lighting; what Designers should know about controls; specifying control intent; the role of a Lighting Controls System Integrator, Controls Specialist, Manufacturer’s Reps, and Manufacturers; what startup and programming are and how those two things differ; and what you should think about in terms of maintenance and support to ensure your design continues to perform as intended.

Developing High Dynamic Range Imaging Procedures for Luminance Uniformity Measurement
High dynamic range imaging (HDRI) is a luminance measurement technique largely used in situations where the luminance range is large, such as in interior spaces. However, there is no clear consensus on procedures for cases in which average luminance is high and the range is small, such as assessing luminaire luminance uniformity.

The presentation concludes with the introduction of a potential new lighting layer for collaborative environments and an invitation to researchers to submit proposals for consideration by the McClung Lighting Research Foundation.

Cultivating Creativity
What is creativity? Does everyone have it? Can it be taught or developed? How is it manifested in lighting design?

Every day we are presented with problems to solve, but are they really problems? Or are they opportunities for creativity? Do restrictions or limitations stimulate our creative abilities? How can our work style encourage or discourage creativity in others?

The purpose of this session is to examine with the audience the factors that contribute to unrestrained creativity, in general and specific to lighting design. We will discuss how we use knowledge and experience as a bridge to creativity and will look at how our approaches change dependent on whether a project is tightly defined, or we are allowed more design freedom.

We will use participatory exercises to help attendees learn to approach design with a beginner’s mind, use curiosity and innovation and encourage a wider expanse of possibilities. We will use role play to explore methods for creating an environment where even the most junior team member is encouraged to contribute ideas and develop their own design style.

Lighting Integrated with other Building Systems
Lighting controls are often used on projects and required by many energy codes. With the shift to LEDs, lighting controls may not be as cost effective as in the past. However, because the lighting controls are often on the project, they can be integrated with other building systems. By integrating the lighting controls with other buildings systems a synergy occur where energy and cost savings can increase beyond the what was achieved with lighting. The of lighting controls with other building systems can help make the lighting controls be more cost effective.

Emotion and Light: A Lighting Designers Personal Journey Thru Post Concussion Syndrome (PCS)
This presentation will discuss, from the patient/lighting designer point of view, the various issues faced under PCS, how it affected me mentally, emotionally and from a professional designer’s creativity standpoint. I will be discussing stress and its impact on a person with PCS, how light either increased the stress on my brain or helped with easing the strain, and how personal changes in work habit and lifestyle management allowed me a path for healing. In doing so, my goal is to open the understanding of the research and design community that we can look at things theoretically all day long but until you can actually see it in application and understand what it does to an individual with special conditions, your job is only half done. We make the mistake of designing for a physically whole clientele, but how does it affect us mentally.

Not Your Average Old Boys Club: Supporting Female Talent Beyond the EP
Women enter design fields in equal or greater numbers than men, but as time progresses fewer remain in the design industries. The lack of support and subsequent exit from the industry keeps women from contributing their diverse perspectives and experiences that add value to a business and to a design. How do we support this diversity? To make things more inclusive and accessible moving forward, we have a model that we want to share.

Specifying in the Digital Age of Lighting Controls
Modern lighting controls systems are more complex than they used to be and specifying them is a growing challenge. There are many different components that make up a complete lighting control system and so being able to quickly identify and specify the basic components of a lighting control system is a skill that all lighting designers should have. This presentation proposes a new way of looking at lighting controls systems, through the lens of the 5 pillars of lighting controls. With this foundational knowledge, it is easier for a design team to provide a complete and functional lighting control system.
