Ultimately, the most important objective for the student is to develop a good understanding of the need to balance all the factors that can influence any lighting installation. For the designer, the engineering calculations should never become the primary consideration, but they must be considered as a major part of the final solution. Thus lighting becomes a matter of balance between quantity and quality, that is between science and art. The teaching procedures should make the student aware that through good lighting design he can not only provide a sufficient quantity of lighting, devoid of glare and veiling reflections, but also he/she should realize that lighting can be a useful tool; with the capacity for influencing interior environments as much as color, material textures, furnishings, and spatial forms.
