This master thesis is about cultural lighting preferences from around the world with the aim to understand them and help with the design of lighting. The paper will dive into the areas of Northern Europe, The Middle East and East Asia. The aim was to get a better understanding of cultural preferences towards lighting to be able to adapt faster to something previously unknown.
This led to the vision:

“Imagine if different cultural preferences for lighting could be identified and presented, to increase knowledge and understanding of how to include them in the process of lighting design.”

Based on this, research was conducted, and a survey was created to get input from the public. With the help of all the data and knowledge that was collected, a proposal for a website with this information was made. Helping to identify culturally significant aspects of lighting that can be a help for lighting designers around the world.
