Lunch + Learn: March 28, 2018

AIA & CSI Lunch & Learn (March 28, 2018)

Light and Color with LEDs

Presented by Myriad Energy Solutions

Our eyes can play tricks on us when it comes to color and how the eyes adapt.  Lighting designs are affected, positively and negatively, by this.  Understanding basic vision science, and how the eye perceives colors of objects and the environment, are important elements in design considerations. Comprehending color metrics that are used with conventional and LED sources will allow for a more thoughtful technical and artistic approach to the design.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand the basics of vision science, and how we see color in our environment.
  2. Describe current color metrics and terms such as: CRI and evolving color scales, Correlated Color Temperature, and trichromatic theory.
  3. Describe how lighting affects how we perceive the color of objects and the environment, and the tradeoffs between color rendering and efficacy.
  4. Understand these effects when designing lighting solutions, using conventional and/or LED sources.

January Lunch + Learn Schedule

January 11, 2012, “Architectural & Security, Gate & Fencing Systems,” presented by Greg Marchione, Ametco Manufacturing.

The course provides an overview of gate and fencing systems, which are both functional and decorative, and are designed to meet modern security and design requirements while harmonizing with the surrounding environment. At the end of this program, participants will be able to identify a wide range of exterior and interior applications of today’s fence and gate systems based on their functional, decorative, and security requirements. We will discuss today’s fence and gate systems in terms of their composition, materials, coatings, and finishes, classify gate track configurations, hardware, hinges, and locking mechanisms. We will identify the performance elements of various types of fencing systems, and the attributes of a variety of infill panel designs. Finally, we will assess factors such as security, efficiency, aesthetics, and the surrounding environment, and specify the most appropriate gate and/or fencing system for a specific application. 1CEH.
