Tivoli - HOW WE USE COLOR - AIA Course
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 your overall environment and lighting design. “How We See Color” was developed to help you understand 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 .
“How We Use Color” is the second part of the instructional series presented by Tivoli. This course briefly reviews how the eye adapts to its environment and explains what affects certain light sources, colors and illumination levels have on the human eye and why you should take these items into consideration in your overall design. Then the course walks you 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 the desired effect, as well as new controllable technologies to consider as they apply to your application.
During both of these one-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 AIA.org.
