Considerations of Lighting Influencing Design: A Community Center For Fremont

In order to conceptualize an architectural design, one must consider lighting and perception. Humans are visual creatures; the main perception of an architectural space is heavily influenced by light. Light defines the character of a space, through color, brightness, and contrast, as well as other factors. By considering lighting as one of the main design concepts for a building, a new method of architectural design can be explored. This method concerns the design of a building from the inside out, always considering human use, needs, and perception. While this project is ostensibly an architectural design, it is more appropriately the concept of a building, used as a basis for the lighting design. From its inception, this project was thought to be an exploration of new design methods, using lighting considerations. It is hoped that these new methods and explorations will yield a different kind of building, one that is based in the perceptions and experiences of its users.
