This course looks at the advancements and opportunities for providing energy-efficient lighting in a 24/7 environment such as a hospital. The course discusses concepts such as harvesting daylighting, which looks at the amount of lighting in a space to determine when electrical light doesn’t need to be on; tones of white light; color temperature; spectral power distribution; and color rendering of white light. The healing and emotional power of lighting is examined through various case studies such as the National Intrepid Center of Excellence, Bethesda, Maryland, a rehab center for solders suffering traumatic brain injury who are easily disoriented triggered by light, the Loyola Bone Marrow Treatment Facility Renovation, Maywood, Illinois; and the Banner Page Hospital Emergency Department addition, Page, Arizona. Lighting solutions are proposed such as minimal interior contrast, no point lighting, creating wayfinding with sconces, and using passive light.
This course is organized as a three-act play that looks at hospitality, healthcare, and retail scenarios as a metaphor for collaboration and action. The course discusses the need for a whole new system of knowledge to enable us to make the best design and construction decisions. Product improvement, healthy buildings, and access to good data are explored in the quest to find the best solutions to meet sustainability targets and to make collaborative decisions faster and easier.
This course looks at how to extend your reach through strategic partnerships, thought leadership, or your own practice. The course discusses the advantages of large firms, such as their ability to invest strategically, diversify, be more profitable, and more able to attract talent. The course examines various award- winning projects that have the ability to change the way we live, the environmental impact of buildings, and how large firms with their greater amount of employees can generate more ideas, possibly some big ideas.
