The programme provides in-depth understanding of the field of architectural lighting design through scientific-based knowledge and practical experience in the area of artificial light and daylight. The aim of the programme is to teach the ability to apply advanced knowledge in this area, in both practical and academic situations.

The programme uses innovative teaching and learning methods such as structured lectures and peer-review methods. Interactive sessions create a constructive learning environment in which understanding of the subject is built through the interaction of students and teachers via presentations and open discussions, tutoring and workshops. The education mixes theory and practice and, for this reason, we perform full-scale studies, via prototypes and mock-ups, in order to trigger first-hand experience of light within architecture. Furthermore, laboratory sessions allow in-depth understanding of physical and visual phenomena. A series of motivational lectures are offered throughout the programme, where acclaimed international and national lighting designers, architects and researchers share their knowledge and expertise.

The students’ assessment is performed via a combination of individual and group work assignments.

The Lighting Laboratory organizes a series of events to interface the academy with companies and research institutions on specific topics, for instance the seminar series Lighting Vision and the Digital Lighting. In 2018 KTH, will host the Light Symposium, a two-day international event focused on light and health.

The Lighting Laboratory carry out several research projects together with companies and other institutions where students are involved. Students from the master’s programme in Architectural Lighting Design have been granted consistent national and international research funding and scholarships for the development of their thesis.

Four courses are given (Light and Humans, Light and Space – outdoor, Light and Space – indoor, and Light and Science) and a degree project is conducted during the one-year programme.

This is a one year programme (60 ECTS credits) given in English. Graduates are awarded the degree of Master of Science. The programme is given mainly at KTH Campus in Stockholm by the School of Architecture and Built Environment (at KTH).

Light and Humans

The aim of the module is to learn about the relationship between light and humans, which is mediated by the physical space. Knowledge related to light qualities, cultural and human aspects, light sources and materials is combined with experience of the design process. The outcome should be the ability to develop a complete solution for a lighting design object.

Light and Space – outdoor

The connection between light and outdoor environments – especially urban contexts, in its physical and cultural character – is addressed through the expansion of lighting knowledge and vocabulary. The design task in this track concludes with a full-scale outdoor installation. The ability to work with light sources and the design process is expanded and critical assessment of the design solution is promoted.

Light and Space – indoor

The importance of dealing with daylight as well as artificial lighting in indoor spaces is addressed through activities related to sources and technology, space theory, visual ergonomics and performance. Design process, planning and presentation techniques will be handled in activities and tasks.

Light and Science

Theoretical knowledge about light and its relationship to space and humans is further developed through discussions between students and researchers in the field. Lectures combine with experimental sessions and study visits. The ability to analyse lighting conditions through the understanding of the visual and physical concepts of light will be developed in a case study and presented as an academic paper.

Degree project

The programme is concluded with a degree project, the focus of which may be chosen from a wide variety of topics within the field of architectural lighting design. Theoretical papers about light and health, light and time, urban lighting, perception and information, as well as practical projects with a theoretical frame in rural lighting and interactive lighting design are a few examples of previous degree projects.

Topics covered

Lighting design, architecture, well-being, sustainability, perception, psychophysical studies, quantitative and qualitative approach, lighting laboratory and user-oriented approach.

Specific requirements for the master’s programme in Architectural Lighting Design

A bachelor’s degree, corresponding to at least 180 ECTS credits, in Architecture, Design or Engineering. The engineering degree must include at least 30 ECTS credits of Architecture and Design subjects. Exceptions can be made on the basis of professional experience.
