Ecosense is proud to offer three 1-hour lighting education presentations accredited by the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Each presentation also qualifies for one Lighting Education Unit (LEU) under the National Council on Qualifications for the Lighting Professions (NCQLP.) Additionally, ESL105 is accredited by the International Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC) and qualifies for one continuing education unit (CEU) for Interior Designers.
- ESL103 – Enhancing Exterior Architecture & Landscaping with LED Lighting
Architectural Lighting has changed dramatically since the introduction of LED light sources. Structures and landscapes can now be illuminated better than ever using
smaller, more efficient light sources. Participants will learn lighting design techniques for dramatically illuminating exterior facades, entries, architectural
details and landscapes, using knowledge of LED light fixture intensities, optics and mounting locations.
- ESL104 – Enhancing Interior Spaces with Indirect Lighting
Interior spaces can best be enhanced with layer lighting designs, which incorporate a combination of direct and indirect lighting. This course explores how indirect lighting can be used to improve the comfort level of a space and allow it to be used in multiple ways. Participants will learn lighting design techniques for dramatically illuminating ceilings, walls and backlighting through translucent materials. This course also examines the unique properties of LED luminaries and how they should be selected and specified to insure quality and performance.
- ESL105 – Designing Interior Space with Indirect Lighting
Humans have evolved to prefer certain characteristics of interior spaces – we naturally gravitate towards and feel more comfortable in spaces that are coherent, that provide a clear view of how to move through them, that are well lit, with the correct balance of different types of light, and where the things that are most important about the space are easily visible.
Indirect lighting makes use of the building’s interior envelope and volume to modulate, amplify, and balance lighting from various sources. A layered approach to the design and lighting of interior spaces, which incorporates a balance of direct and indirect lighting improves visual coherence and wayfinding; articulates and highlights architectural elements; and positively impacts health and productivity.
This course explores how indirect lighting can be used to improve the comfort level of a space and allow it to be used in multiple ways. Participants will learn lighting design techniques for optimizing the design of interior spaces by illuminating ceilings and walls, and by backlighting through translucent materials.
