Organization profile

Organisation profile

The Lighting Design Research Group combines architecture, engineering and technology in a human centric approach to lighting solutions that seek to improve our built environment with applied knowledge of lighting design.   Experiments through scale models, photo-realistic simulations and 1:1 dynamic lighting design mock-ups on site, are developed to study how light can affect people in different environments.   The experiments address these needs through contextual analysis, concept design and development, prototyping, information technology and programming, autonomous controlled lighting and technical hardware solutions, including sensors, a mobile lighting laboratory, thermal camera tracking, EEG, smartphone applications, and anthropological qualitative research methodologies.
