Module Code:ARCH8023
 
Duration:1 Semester
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:Intermediate
Field of Study: Architecture & Urban Environment
Valid From: Semester 1 - 2019/20 ( September 2019 )
Module Delivered in 2 programme(s)
Next Review Date: April 2024
Module Coordinator: KATHERINE KEANE
Module Author: MARC O RIAIN
Module Description: This module explores the key aspects of Light and lighting design principles related to Interior Architecture. The module then applies these principles in sketch and plan supported by simulation software.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Recognise the principles of lighting design.
LO2 Evaluate types of lighting devices and their application to building interiors
LO3 Compose plans and designs that illustrate a lighting design intent
LO4 Schematise the use of lighting metrics for a building interior.
LO5 Simulate and analyse a commercial interior using lighting design software.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named CIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
No incompatible modules listed
Co-requisite Modules
No Co-requisite modules listed
Requirements

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is mandatory before enrolment in this module is allowed. You may not enrol on this module if you have not acquired the learning specified in this section.

A student will need to have an understanding of Autocad to be able to complete some of the assignments.
