This course provides an introduction to the effects of light on interior space, as well as to various lighting products and lighting systems. Students will learn about the lighting challenges for interior spaces and how to effectively meet them. The course teaches the basics of lighting layout, lighting terminology, and the lighting designer's role in the interior design process. Within the studio structure, students are expected to produce a complete lighting package, including a fixture schedule and reflected ceiling plan. At times this course may be cross-tallied at the graduate level as CID 6100. Additional work required for graduate level credit is outlined in the course syllabus. The textbook, Interior Lighting for Designers by Gary Gordon and Jim Nuckolls (either third or fourth edition), will be necessary for the first class.
