The Illuminating Engineering Society recently announced a new webinar program designed to give members, educators and the general public access to information about quality lighting.
The video recordings in the series can be used for IES Section Meetings, as an instructional supplement for introductory lighting courses in post-secondary settings, and for those who are interested in knowing more about lighting.
The first presentation in the Indispensable Lighting Series is a two-hour, two-part video entitled Architecture for Light by Kim and Paul Mercier. In Part One, Heirloom Ideas, Modern Semantics and Current Realizations, Kim and Paul examine design considerations for creating the built environment that embrace light. In Part Two, Lighting Design in the Era of Energy Codes, the authors discuss the lighting design process, integrated design, and explore case studies involving these concepts. Theses videos do not require a technical background or previous knowledge about lighting.
For IES Sections and other approved lighting education providers offering this video in face-to-face educational settings, attendees are eligible for 2 IES Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
Kim and Paul have authored a book by the same title as the video. For those who prefer having content in a tangible format, Architecture for Lighting is available in the IES store.
