Photorealistic imaging

Photorealistic imaging

Exploration of energy efficient lighting schemes through photorealistic simulations. Lighting schemes are developed both to meet illuminance requirements and following luminance based design approach. Selection of best schemes is obtained through testing with panels of observers.

Partnership: Henning Larsen Architects, Rambøll Engineering, Dansk Center for Lys.

Responsive Public Lighting

Responsive Public Lighting

Exploration of new social, aesthetic and energy efficient lighting solutions for sensor controlled public lighting in contemporary smart cities. Experiments are developed using various sensors such as: thermal camera tracking, mobile phones and wind sensors as input to the autonomous controlled lighting.

Partnership: Team Tronic, Riegens, Alfred Priess , Dansk Center for Lys.

Health and wellbeing

Health and wellbeing

Healing architecture is a body of theory founded on the concept that architecture affects human well-being, and that therefore architecture can strengthen and promote healing in health-care facilities.

This theoretical standpoint is built and tested in terms of architectural variables in clinical outcomes; architectural functions; patient and staff satisfaction; and economic cost benefits.

Daylight Design

Daylight Design

A fundamental potential for a sustainable development is to design with knowledge of daylight cross disciplines and cultures. This PhD explores how scientific and creative methods can be united in a knowledge based design process. A model demonstrates how knowledge from different fields through the experiment can be integrated and synthesized by defining criteria and hypothesis.
The thesis is based on collaborations between the building industry, architectural educations and research.

Lighting Experiments

Lighting Experiments

Students, researchers and private partners team up to test new sensors, light fixtures and lighting techniques in order to learn from the process of making. The research is explorative and searches new trajectories and lighting practices.

The initiatives will often be part of an art, light or music event.
