Light/Sound in Architecture

This course presents the fundamentals of lighting and acoustic design in buildings. Subjective responses to light and sound are explored, and simple calculations are used to evaluate spatial acoustic and lighting performance. Natural lighting processes and energy management techniques are investigated. Fundamentals of acoustic separation are presented. Students will analyse case studies of a variety of room types, including interior office spaces, public galleries and performance spaces that present opportunities to evaluate sound and light in various applications. Model testing of room acoustic performance and lighting will be introduced.
