My thesis explores the possibility of developing a more effective interaction between users and lighting in built environments. Most current lighting controls overlook the importance of the users’ satisfaction, but lighting controls should be designed with a deeper consideration of the users and their activities. I will develop an effective and intuitive lighting design that is based on user and task analysis and controlled by users. This analogue method of thinking about space and lighting controls on a micro-level will contribute to a better quality of experience than in conventional ways of approaching lighting controls from a macro-scale. A balanced combination of individual and automatic lighting controls will satisfy users without compromising sustainability.
