In the course of the design process I also looked at some negative examples of museum design. For example, dazzling light, etc. In looking for examples I found that some of the situations could be solved well with just some ingenuity, such as the frosted glass and tilted table tops in the Tokyo Museum. There […]

This week has focused on the analysis of my programme sites. The exhibition area is approximately two hundred square metres. There are three main functional blocks: the exhibition wall, the exhibition cabinets and the lounge area. The luminance target to be achieved is 300lux, which gives a total lighting requirement of approximately 60,000lux for the […]

This week started with the design of my own project. Initially I chose the already built architectural library at Chulalongkorn University to create a lighting design for their reading and modelling areas. However, in subsequent explorations it became clear that the existing lighting design for the library was well established and it would be difficult […]

This week we have been learning about the relationship between light and colour. The course analysed the principles behind the appearance of different colours in various nature. In the workshop I also felt the impact of many colours of light. One of the things that struck me most during a previous study of lighting was […]

This week we have been working on a lighting plan for the different target spaces to reflect their most distinctive features. The goal of our group’s task was to turn the original site into a reading and map collection room. The objective was to create a quiet, softly lit and sufficiently bright environment. The original […]

During the week we studied the various lamps brought by the lighting company. The focus was on comparing the materials, sharpness, distance of illumination and different colour temperatures of the different luminaires. In the course of our research we have found that the same type of luminaire can have different effects at different angles of […]

This week we experimented with two latitude and longitude charts to determine the length of shadows at different sun positions and how to determine the sun’s altitude angle from the charts. This experiment can be of some help to our usual design. This can be used when we are determining the location of a project […]

Task1 -The windows and doors in the gallery lobby will reveal some natural light, partly blocked by floorboards and columns, creating some shadows. -For paintings, avoiding direct UV light is one way to preserve them better. It is also important to protect the paintings by not allowing flash photography in the gallery. Usually the lighting […]

This week we visited Catholic Chaplaincy, which show a good case of combining sunlight and the man-made light.  In order to understanding the different situation of light using we use some professional equipment to test the daylight factor. We can see that the designer made full use of daylight. Only some of the strip lights […]

I am Yuqian Li, a student major in interior and architecture design. The design of light is exactly a important part of interior design and it also a very professional subject.  The interest of watching drama is the reason why that lignting design attracted me. The designer use the change of light could show different […]
