Designing for Circadian Rhythms: Metrics, Workflows & Establishing Conventions for Design with GSA


October 2016

The design community has increasingly recognized the influence of light on human health and well-being. This session will present emerging circadian lighting metrics, protocols, tools, and case studies that enable architects to evaluate the circadian resource impact from daylight and electric light sources within built environments. The research findings on light and health conducted in five federal office buildings by the U.S. General Services Administration and researchers from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute will be covered. Gain key insights on how lighting design for health and well-being should be an integral part of strategies to improve organizational effectiveness, drawing on results from GSA workplace research.
