Outline and Purpose of the Course These lectures will cover the theory and techniques relating to acoustics, lighting, and color (among the fundamental physical environmental elements to be considered in architectural design for realization of a comfortable and safe environment), and their applications in actual design. In order to take the course, students must have a basic understanding of related topics (covered in Architectural Environmental Engineering II).
Course Goals For students to learn the theory and associated techniques required for architectural design relating to acoustics, lighting, and color, and how to apply them to actual design. Of the learning and education objectives listed by the department: C: Practical Skills C1: The ability to create buildings.
Schedule and Contents Measurement and Evaluation of Sound and Acoustic Material - 3 classes: These lectures will explain basic matters relating to the measurement of the physical properties of sound, as well as explaining various acoustic measures in noise and room acoustics and outlining how to measure them.
Noise Control Design - 2 classes: These lectures will explain the processes relating to interior and exterior noise (from generation to propagation and sound absorption), and related properties; they will also outline various noise countermeasures that can be taken in those processes.
Room Acoustic Design - 2 classes: These lectures will outline fundamental topics and methods for optimizing sound fields in rooms for its their given purposes. Room Acoustics has developed with the transition of Hall Acoustics. The historical circumstances will also be explained here.
Lighting Environments for Clear Vision and Visual Ability - 2 classes: These lectures will explain topics that must be considered for the design of a lighting environment that is comfortable and safe, on the basis of human visual ability. The lectures will cover light and vision, luminance contrast and visibility, clear vision conditions, glare, brightness perception, and the effect of aging on vision.
Architectural Lighting Evaluation and Design - 2 classes: These lectures will outline basic methods for the consideration of architectural lighting, and the psychological effects of the lighting environment. The lectures will cover the calculation of indirect illuminance in a room, daylight and artificial lighting, natural lighting, methods and examples of architectural lighting, and psychological evaluation of lighting environments.
Color Engineering and illumination - 3 classes: These lectures will explain the fundamentals of color engineering, from the CIE XYZ color system to uniform color space, and their applications for illumination engineering. Lectures will cover xy chromaticity diagrams, calculating additive color mixtures, uniform color space and color difference, color temperature, and color rendering index.
Student Assessment - 1 class: Assessment of students' understanding and application of course material.
Evaluation Methods and Policy Evaluation will be based on final examination scores.
Course Requirements Students must have taken Architectural Environmental Engineering II.
Study outside of Class (preparation and review) Students are required to prepare by reading textbook sections prior to each lecture.
Additionally, students shall deepen their understanding by reviewing material covered after each lecture and ask their instructors about any points that are unclear
