A new Lighting Plan for Schiphol
Project for the Lighting Design elective at TUDelft. The assignment was to rethink the lighting of the new security filter at Schiphol Airport.
Focus on transitions
Going through a security is a complex process: the user has move through different zones, all with their specific requirements regarding lighting and atmosphere. It seems logical to focus on those zones, but what users slows down mostly are not the zones themselves but the transition between them. When focusing on the specific requirements of different zones too much, the contrast between zones might become so big that people need time to process the new zone, which eventually slows them down So, instead of just looking at the aspects of the different zones, we chose an integral approach while focusing of smoothing out the transitions between the zones.
