Light is essential for human life and functioning. It influences the well-being of people in a physiological, psychological and biological way. As such, light is a key element in the design of our buildings and our built environment.
The field of building lighting focuses on identifying and analyzing the parameters that lead to the creation of an optimally lit environment, and on the implementation of these parameters in the built environment. It requires knowledge of all human related aspects of lighting as well as the physics of both daylight and artificial lighting. The optimal integral design of a building requires bridging gaps and exploring synergies between light and the other physical aspects involved in buildings, as well as those between light and the non-physical aspects of buildings. Building lighting is also intensively connected to energy use and sustainability, which are two of the major environmental challenges facing our society today.
