Abstract

Architectural lighting design is a unique process that is both highly visual and highly technical. A good design must be visually pleasing and provide adequate light to the space, but also must be energy efficient, easy to maintain, and affordable. With advances in modern technology, it is possible to conduct in-depth designs with 3d modeling software, physically accurate materials and lights, and photorealistic advanced rendering techniques. The models and renderings can be used for calculations to verify light levels and for presentations of how the space will look and feel to a potential client. Recently, virtual reality is becoming a feasible application to these designs as well. These tools have a learning curve and require adequate computing power but are very useful. Modeling and rendering techniques are discussed and demonstrated in their application to a case study involving the renovation of a lighting system for a lobby area.
