Lighting Fixture Fab Assignments:
Design and Build the frame structure of your 5 x 5 lighting fixture modules.
(You don’t need to assemble/install your light modules, we will install them after wiring LED diodes next week.)
Take a picture of your finished frame and upload it on the class blog by next Wed. midnight (Oct. 1)
For team project members, your model is in full scale (1″=1″). For individual project members, your model is in 1/2 scale (1″ = 1/2″). Consider that your desk dimensions are 32 x 72 inches. The sizes of frames for both team projects and individual projects are max. 16 x 32 inches. (following laser cutter sizes 18 x 32 inches)
Any late work will be down-graded 10% daily.
Read distributed two articles and answer below questions, upload your doc file on the course blog by Oct. 8 midnight (two weeks later)
1. Questions from “Hackers and Painters.”
How are hackers and painters different from each other based on the article (not your ideas)?
How are hackers and painters similar to each other based on the article (not your ideas)?
Are you a hacker or painter? Explain why?
2. Questions from “Questions of Perception” (this article will be distributed on this Thursday)
After reading the article,
1) select a lighting design project that inspires you most.
2) describe the effect of lighting design elements in the selected project.
How does the architect design the building and lighting ?
Does she use direct or indirect lighting?
Does she use natural or electric lighting?
Does she use the changes in brightness, in object color, or in color temperature (of light source)?
3. describe the purpose of designed lighting effect.
What does the architect want to achieve?
4. describe your own evaluation about the selected project?
Was the project and lighting design effective and successful? If you think so, explain what makes the project successful.
If you think the project is not successful, explain why?
(You should make a decision about the selected project. If you don’t know about the project well, can’t evaluate, or lack solid reasoning, your assignment will be considered as incomplete.)
You can submit your own independent lighting and acoustics project proposals.
Just write one page proposal which includes both lighting and acoustic topics, and email me your intention and an initial proposal by midnight Sep. 29. (no late proposal will be accepted)
One critical aspect of this project is that it must make you excited and yourself fun!
Initial draft: Sep 29. Monday Midnight
Revised Proposal: Oct. 6. Monday Midnight
Final Proposal: Oct. 13. Monday Midnight (no change allowed after your final proposal)
1. Times new roman, 12 font,
2. Single line space,
3. 1 inch margin four sides.
4, Your name and the title of your study.
1. Single study purpose written in forms of (multiple) questions. For example,
How does lighting technology change the perception of public space?
2. Evaluation criteria using NUMBERS. For example,
1) 5,000 words-essay,
2) Your own lighting fixture design with 5,000 lumen, and a zero-energy speaker (solar powered or kinetic powered)
One mandatory mid-term review:
Pick your date (during class time) and include it in your proposal. You will present your interim work to your class mates.
Final Study Project Presentation & Submission Due:
Presentation at the last date of this course (December 9th).
Materials are due Monday midnight (December 8th)
