AbstractMany lighting designers and researchers see exciting possibilities in the mounting discoveries concerning physiological functions that light and darkness influence. Our daily exposure to light and darkness influences circadian cycles of hormone release, bodily functions, and activity. This knowledge has led to light treatments to help shift workers and people with sleep disorders. Some argue that new forms of interior lighting might improve the health and well-being of people in everyday environments, and that updated lighting recommendations should have this aim. So far as is currently known, chief among the implications is the importance of daylighting, which means that sustainability and healthy lighting are congruent goals.
