Arch 435 | Principles and Practices of Environmental Lighting
Arch 498 | Architectural Lighting Design

 

For over fifteen years Edward has designed architectural lighting. During this time he has designed the lighting for a range of project types and worked with a variety of clients. He has also won numerous design awards, given seminars and written several published articles on lighting. Edward has a MFA from the Parsons School of Design in Architectural Lighting. He is a member of the International Association of Lighting Designers, the Illumination Engineering Society and is Lighting Certified and LEED® Accredited. He currently holds the position of Research Assistant Professor specializing in Electric Lighting for the Integrated Design Lab, which is part of CAUP. His design philosophy is to use light to create inspiring environments that lift the human spirit while having the least impact on the planet. Paraphrasing an Australian Aboriginal quote often used by the architect Glenn Murcutt…”to touch this earth lightly”.

Mehlika Inanici

Arch 589 | Simulation Based Design
Arch 582 | Computational Lighting Design and Analysis

 

Mehlika Inanici is an Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University of Washington, where she teaches in the areas of computation and building performance.

Professor Inanici received B. Arch (1993) and Master of Science in Building Science (1995) degrees from METU (Ankara, Turkey). She has Master of Science in Architecture (2001) and Ph.D. (2004) degrees from the University of Michigan. In her dissertation studies, she developed the Virtual Lighting Laboratory , a computation tool and methodology that transforms how physically based digital images are used in lighting analysis and design.

Before assuming her current position in the fall of 2005, Dr. Inanici worked at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) as a postdoctoral fellow. She developed the Lighting Measurement, Simulation, and Analysis Toolbox. She has formulated the calibration and validation procedures to adapt High Dynamic Range photography as a luminance measurement technique and received the LBNL Outstanding Performance Award for this study.

Professor Inanici is currently working on developing and demonstrating new qualitative and quantitative lighting analysis techniques that are based on per-pixel data extracted from computer-generated and digitally captured images. She has published and presented her research in international journals and conferences. She is a member of Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA), International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA) and Association of Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA).

Joel Loveland

Director, Integrated Design Lab
Arch 331/431 | Environmental Control Principles

 

Joel Loveland is the Director of the University of Washington’s Betterbricks Integrated Design Lab (IDL) for Puget Sound and a Professor in the Department of Architecture at the University of Washington. The IDL’s activities date to 1980 as a teaching lab for the University of Washington and included being the first daylighting design assistance lab in the United States. The Lab is currently funded by The Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance, British Columbia Hydro, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and other private groups and public agencies. The Lab has a staff of four full-time resident consultants, a program manager and ten research assistants that have worked on more than 100 projects a year since late 1999. Recent articles about the Lab’s activities have been published in both the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Metropolis Magazine and Environmental Design and Construction, the October, 2004 “sustainable design” issue of Lighting Design and Applications and in the European journal Intelligent Glass Solutions. Joel was voted one of the 2004 Top 25 Sustainable Design Professionals by the editorial staff of the Sustainable Design Journal.

Four Lab projects in the last four years have won AIA, Committee on the Environment’s National Top Ten Green Building Awards. Since taking over the direction of the activities of the BetterBricks Lab in 1999 the Lab’s projects include the Tacoma Art Museum with Olson Sundberg and Antoine Predock Architects, Pierce County Environmental Services and the Seattle Northeast Branch Library with the Miller Hull Partnership, Boise’s Idaho Place and Water Place and the Seattle Justice Center with NBBJ Seattle, Seattle City Hall and the Seattle Ballard Community Library with Bohlin Cywinsky Jackson Architects, the Salem North Mall State of Oregon Office Building with Yoste Grube Hall Architects, Ash Creek Middle School with BOORA Architects and the Evergreen State College Seminar Two - Classroom Complex and Ben Franklin Elementary School with Mahlum Architects. Prior to taking over the directorship of the Betterbricks Daylighting Lab Seattle, he was a partner in Loveland Millet Lighting Consultants, an architectural lighting and energy conservation consulting firm that specialized in the integration of daylight and electric light.

Professor Loveland graduated with a Bachelors of Architecture from Arizona State University and Masters of Architecture and Urban Planning from UCLA, he is currently a Professor in the Department of Architecture and Adjunct Professor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Washington where he teaches or has recently taught design studio, lecture and seminar courses related to sustainability, the nature of light, landscape and architecture. He held the, 1998 Baker Chair of Architectural Lighting, at the University of Oregon. Joel created and manages the University of Washington’s Lighting Design Certificate.

He is author of Daylight, Window Room: The Building as a Light Fixture, to be published by the University of Washington Press and co-author of the Second Edition of Inside-out, Handbook for Passive Environmental Controls. Recent research and numerous papers presented nationally and internationally that include energy technology case studies of state-of-the-art energy efficient buildings in the Pacific Northwest, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy.
