To conduct an architectural lighting design, we need to see the airplane as a building. Google defines architecture as “the profession of designing … artificial constructions.” This mode of view embraces both buildings and transportations in the same scope as built environment, thus we can regard an airplane not as an object but as a space for daily activities, much like a residential or an office building. In this context, the interior of an airplane is an architectural space that has never been visited by a lighting designer to apply human-centric daylighting strategy. By bringing daylight into the passenger cabin space, this project will deliver visual comfort and task performance to the passengers with superior light quality and distribution compared to the lighting system.
