DELTA examined lighting systems for three types of spaces in this new high school: the cafeteria, the library, and the art rooms. Lighting objectives included providing good task visibility and visual comfort, minimizing energy use, and providing flexibility and visual interest in the lighting. This project demonstrates that indirect lighting promotes visual comfort, designers should take into account the presence of obstructions when planning the layout of luminaires, lighting controls must be easily accessible to authorized personnel, and luminaires should be designed to resist abuse.
