Conscious planning, designing, and developing for wellbeing is a growing trend in the design industry. Indoor air quality, thermal comfort, acoustics, and lighting in a building, among many other factors, can significantly affect the productivity and comfort of building occupants. Light is one very important tool that can be used to improve the mood, productivity, attention span, and overall health of occupants because it is the main driver of the visual and circadian systems. This course will explore the connection between lighting design and wellness and will examine a new advanced LED chip technology that provides blue peak free lighting that mimics natural sunlight (meaning the traditional harsh blue peak found in most LED technology has been reduced). This technology is being used to improve occupant wellbeing in healthcare facilities, schools, and offices, among other commercial applications.
