Tivoli Launches AIA Online Courses on Light & Color
Tivoli, LLC announced the publication of a two new AIA Continuing Education courses entitled, “How We See Color” and “How We Use Color.” The two-part series features courses specifically designed to explain the mysteries of the human eye and how it adapts to its environment and what effect this has on our overall environment and lighting design. The second part of the course presents recommendations and solutions on how to use color to achieve desired effects.
Tivoli’s original course, “How We See Color” was launched in 2011 and was developed to help viewers understand how the human eye detects and identifies color. Often people take for granted that the identification of color is a simple process. This course explains how the human eye adapts to its surroundings and how this affects the built environment. “How We See Color” explains how light affects colors and objects, as well as how light is measured utilizing a variety of tools. Upon completion of the course, viewers will be able to describe how we see and measure color with traditional and LED light sources, as well as gain an understanding of color temperatures, CRI, color consistency, and metamerism.
The second course in the series, “How We Use Color,” briefly reviews how the eye adapts to its environment and explains the effects certain light sources, colors, and illumination levels have on the human eye, and why architects and designers should take these into consideration.
The course then walks through a number of different considerations on how to choose a fixture style appropriate to the application, how to identify an illumination source to mimic, and how to specify color. Viewers will also receive a variety of tips on how to best achieve desired effects, as well as new controllable technologies to consider as they apply to specific applications.
During both of these 1-hour courses, architects, specifiers, lighting designers, engineers, owners, and more can earn 1 AIA Learning Unit (LU) hour. Both courses are free and suitable for all audiences of any level. The on-line courses are available by logging onto hanleywooduniversity.com or www.AIA.org.
