IES Technical Luncheon: Layers of Light

When:  Mar 20, 2019 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM (ET)

Sooner or later it gets dark outside…and that means the visual success of your projects need a great lighting design. Learn how to successfully identify and apply a nature-inspired layered approach to lighting commercial spaces informed by best practices and the recommendations of the Illuminating Engineering Society. Case studies from private office to medical practice and from church to restaurant will reveal when to draw on a sunny day for artificial lighting design, and when to look for different inspiration.
