051438 - LIGHTING
The object of the course is a detailed study of the methods, theoretic and practical, regarding the development of a lighting project, aimed above all at enhancing indoor and outdoor space. The course is centred mainly on the relationship between light and architecture and on the analysis, through different case histories, of projects and realisations related to different types of space. The aim is to acquire an approach method to the different space situations, considering that pre-established solutions do not exist but that solutions can be infinite.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
Students: - know and understand the processes and methods regarding the development of a lighting project; - can apply the skills acquired to develop a space; - autonomously find solutions that go beyond those that already exist.
The course will go through the process of lighting design taking in consideration the most defining field of application.
Fashion Retail Lighting - The objective is to provide the bases to deal with the design of commercial areas and shops from the point of view of the initial approach and the operating mode of selection of lamps and lighting fixtures. The design study, the product category to be illuminated and the correct positioning of the luminaires of lighting.

Outdoor lighting - The objective is to show how the light can change our cities and monuments and what are the needs of the citizen and the city.
One of these topics will be used as case study on which the students will have to develop a project.
The fields of application will be will be assisted by a module of Lighting Theory that will give to the students the necessary tools to better understand the subject and develop their projects.
There are no pre-requisites for attendance.
Modalità di valutazione
Consistent and active attendance of the students in the course. Attending several revisions throughout the course and a final project on a given space.
The final evaluation will be mainly based on analyzing the participation in the tasks and the active attendance of the student, throughout the course. A test on lighting theory, the revisions during the programme, as well as the final project, will contribute in defining the final grade.
