Insight Series – Healthcare

Once upon a time . . . now there’s an opening for you. Anyway, once upon a time, lighting was all about illumination; the ability to see where we were and where we were headed. Everything else was incidental to that simple action of being able to see. And before we forget, there are whole swathes of the world where that is still the case.

For those of us fortunate enough to benefit from scientific advancement and the technological advantages that come from those breakthroughs, we now know that ‘simple vision’ doesn’t really exist. There is a deep complexity going on in the interaction between light entering the eye and the way that our bodies – and our minds – respond. Dan Lister and Chris Fordham talk about how we employ our knowledge of light and lighting to improve the heathcare environment.

    You can contact Chris at His lighting design website address is “‘Architecture is the masterly, correct and magnificent play of masses brought together in light. Our eyes are made to see forms in light; light and shade reveal these forms; cubes, cones, spheres, cylinders or pyramids are the great primary forms which light reveals to advantage; the image of these is distinct and tangible within us without ambiguity’ ” — Le Corbusier. 'Vers une architecture' [Towards a new Architecture] (1923)
