Students complete a group project, representative of the collaborative design in practice, which culminates in a client presentation. This unit covers the interpretation of design briefs, the process of conducting a site visit, the identification of lighting design problems, and the proposal of lighting solutions. The process of preparing and revising lighting plans is discussed. Techniques for successful presentations of the final plan to clients are also included.
