Finding Circadian Rhythms in Base Zero Lighting Design
Track: Water, Health + Vitality

Light is essential to human experience. It enables our perception of form, color, and texture. Light is critical to health and well-being through its influence on circadian rhythms that impact our energy, mood, and productivity. This session will highlight findings from a multi-year study on circadian functioning in office buildings, and describe the concept of “base zero” lighting design. State-of-the-art analysis pathways will illustrate how to approach the design of a healthy and resource efficient “lighting ecosystem.” This interactive session will enlist participants in actively applying lighting design techniques that start from zero and maximize daylighting efficacy, supplemented by energy efficient electric light as needed for visual tasks, circadian functioning and architectural expression; resulting in healthy, comfortable, and impactful spaces.
