Students will obtain simulation and evaluation techniques in visual environment design, which are essential for architectural design and lighting design. Especially they will obtain ability of design based on their own view-point after understanding several pieces of work of famous architects and lighting designers.
Obtaining design technique for light and color in Architecture based on psychophysical values.
light, color, architecture
