Catalyst 2011:

An investigation of light,

material, and space

Brian Stacy, ARUP

Blaine Brownell, UMN

Engage the interplay

between light and material

This intensive design and research catalyst will teach

participants examples of light behavior, material

integration, and product development in relation to the

design of physical structures that provide optimal

daylight to interior spaces.

Design Thinking

Students will study lighting strategies

and design opportunities related to the

3M Light Guide daylighting system

installation proposed for Rapson Hall.

Multidisciplinary Environment

Students will research and design

various interior light delivery

mechanisms for daylight in interior

spaces, guided by expertise in lighting

design, architecture, and engineering.

Carson School of Management students

will study the commercialization potential

of these mechanisms.

Fast-Paced Applied Research

In the intensive one week course,

students will test ideas in scale model

simulations and partial full-scale mockups

with a working sample of 3M’s Light
