During my 30+ years of career, I worked in the number of architectural projects, but my heart has been in the “Human Factors” in lighting. Due to the energy codes and regulations, the lighting technologies rapidly advanced, especially in the efficiency and maintenance. Unfortunately, they are only for the environmental benefits. How about “Human Well Being”? Are the occupants healthy and happy in the spaces? In conjunction with Lighting Research Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Arizona State University, and Akali Lighting Design has started exploring the Human Well Being in Lighting in hospitality, educational and medical projects.
