Event Title

Natural lighting of museums

Session

Architecture and Spatial Planning

Description

One of the basic conditions for a higher efficiency of museums is the lighting of their spaces. Proper and balanced lighting helps to focus attention, to create an aesthetic connection between the observer and the work of art as well as to realize a modification to emphasize a conceptual idea. To achieve the maximum lighting needed to highlight exhibits, museums use natural light, but often also consume a lot of electricity when using artificial light. In order to reduce electricity consumption and to ensure that museum objects are authentically exhibited, most museums have begun to integrate as many natural light solutions as possible. This is being made possible as well through various advanced materials as a result of the latest technologies.
