Las Vegas, AIA Event: Light and Us


Please join IES and AIA for an intriguing conversation with George Bosson about our evolution under light, Biophillic design, and WELL Building Standard features!

During the course of human evolution exposure to natural lighting conditions has conditioned neurological stimuli that regulate numerous biological functions. 

Circadian Rhythm, rooted in the Latin for “around the day”, is a term describing the entrained cyclical processes used to sustain most living organisms. The changing spectral distribution characteristics of the sun has been a key influence on how the retina has evolved to become a primary source of sensory stimulus effecting the production and inhibition of hormones essential to Circadian balance. 

Disruption of Circadian Rhythm (our natural cycles) can have deleterious effects on health and wellbeing.

Many of our built environments have created unnatural conditions for its occupants. Research has shown that poor illumination, of the spaces we occupy, can contribute to the disruption of our natural cycles. With the advent of Solid State Lighting (LED) and “nature emulating design” we can transform the environments that we occupy. This course explores ways of applying “Circadian Balanced Illumination™, Biophilic Design and WELL Building lighting principles to invigorate the human condition and benefit our cognition, health and wellbeing. 

The course is approved for AIA Health, Safety and Welfare CEU and NCQLP LC CEU.
