LRC News: Introducing LRC's New Lighting for Healthy Living Website

May 26, 2020

We are pleased to announce that the LRC’s new Lighting for Healthy Living website is now live!

Integrating recent developments in lighting research and education, and bridging them to lighting applications in real-world situations, the new website focuses less on patterns and more on process. Flexible methods and multiple design options are created for specific spaces to meet the unique needs of the people who occupy them.

Intended to educate designers, lighting manufacturers, students, and the general public, this website provides background information as well as design application guidelines to bring the importance of circadian-effective design to light. Learn the basics of light and the circadian system, and apply your new knowledge to light offices, schools, hospitals, and senior care facilities.
