The Spatial Lighting Design university course imparts basic knowledge of the physical principles of light as well as the significance of psychological and physiological parameters of its perception, technical innovations and the basic rules of lighting design. In a practice-oriented module that builds upon this knowledge, participants receive instruction in how to plan and work with light in space.
Thanks to the interdisciplinary approach to light and the combination of theoretical input and practice exercises, university course graduates are capable of providing support with and developing architectural lighting solutions.
This university course consists of 4 modules.
Syllabus (in German)
Space, its materiality and light are causally linked to each other. Thanks to the sun, we are spoiled by a multitude of light qualities. That is why we make an effort to produce them with artificial light. As a result, a trained eye for causal relations and light quality is required as well as thorough basic knowledge of requirements and developments in lighting technology.
Everyday we experience how great lighting design can be when implemented well. In order to do that, a designer requires a broad set of knowledge from varying disciplines. We are happy to announce that we have found a perfect partner, the TU Graz, in order to share the knowledge of this diverse field in a compact format.
Institute of Spatial Design
Graz University of Technology is proud to support the Professional Lighting Design Convention, PLDC, as a Partner University. The Convention, organised by VIA-Verlag, was created for the global lighting design market. Designers, architects, researchers, universities, industry and clients use PLDC as a platform to meet, learn about the latest developments in lighting design, and discuss the future of the lighting profession. PLDC stands for high-quality knowledge transfer and international networking opportunities.
PLDC 2020 will take place in New York City/US, and PLDC 2021 in Stockholm/SE.
