Adaptation Architecture Featured Lighting Research


This project about adaptive lighting is one of four that were conducted as part of the project entitled LED Lighting; Interdisciplinary LED Lighting Research. The research project has been a three-year collaboration between The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts; Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation and The IT University of Copenhagen.

The project entails the investigations of lighting scenarios carried out in two test installations: White Cube and White Box. The test installations are discussed as large-scale experiential instruments. In these test installa- tions we examine what could potentially occur when light using LED technology is integrated and distributed differently into an architectural body. We also examine what might occur when light is dynamic and able to change colour, intensity and direction, and when it is adaptive and can be brought into interaction with its surroundings. In short, what happens to an architectural space when artificial lighting ceases to be static, and no longer acts as a kind of spatial constancy maintaining stability and order? Moreover, what new potentials open in lighting design?
In connection with the experiential analyses we would like to thank Brian Wendin, Katja Bülow, Christina Augustesen, and Karina Mose for their participation in the experiential interviews. These interviews helped us in representing the challenges and conditions related to the new potentials conditioned by LED technology and the qualitative assessments of the various lighting situations.
