Students will obtain basic knowledge on realizing intended appearance by manipulating light and color. Especially they will understand the relationship between psychophysical values of light or color and their perceptional experience, and they will understand tools for estimating appearance from psychophysical measures of light and color, and will obtain how to use them.
Obtaining basic design skills for light and color in urban environmental engineering, Architecture, environment engineering of Architecture and Building service engineering.
Light, color, Architecture, landscape
