We live in an amazing time. Science and design are colliding and expanding our knowledge of cause and effect. The physiology and neuroscience of lighting leave the designer with an ethical debate. What is our responsibility when designing? What is reasonable to account for? What is beyond our reach? This session grew out of a chance conversation that a lighting designer had with a bio-ethicist following Enlighten Americas 2014’s keynote address discussing the new neuroscience of architecture. The speakers will debate the true implications of lighting design questions such as circadian rhythm and our influence through electric lighting, glare’s impact of human interaction, etc. This session will explore the questions any designer must ask about the ethics of their design.
