Perspectives on light quality in spatial contexts

The project investigates and compares methods for measuring and describing light quality.

Interest in and understanding of the impact of light on well-being and health in workplaces, school environments, and healthcare settings is increasing. At the same time, sustainability requirements necessitate reducing energy consumption.

Photometric measurements and lighting standards are inadequate tools for creating good lighting environments, and technical solutions for light control and energy-efficient light sources are insufficient for reducing energy consumption. We also need to change our approach to light and how we use it.

The purpose of the project is to develop and disseminate knowledge about alternative methods we can use to both improve lighting environments and, as a likely consequence, reduce electricity usage.
