Lighting Design Course


Over the past semester, I have been teaching a lighting design class at Shenkar College. This was an interdisciplinary course for interior design departments and electrical engineering. I collaborated with Dr. Rebeka Vital and Dr. Gabriella Dorfman on this topic. There were various objectives we wanted to accomplish through this course in order to progress the connection between design and engineering, Between the design aspect and technical aspect lighting design required.


Firstly, it was important to connect the conceptual world of designers and engineers in the field of lighting design for functional spaces dedicated to human activity. Additionally, new work methods were tested in an interdisciplinary team, which exposed the way professional content is transferred. Lastly, people developed a basic understanding and practical experience in planning and designing lighting for a number of case studies.
