Architectural illumination is typically designed at the end rather than the beginning, a design process. Designers use visualization to make relevant suggestions concerning lighting as illumination and lighting require expertise. However, in the early phase of a design development process, no alternative lighting or illumination systems are considered by the designer . Therefore, the scope of this research is about artificial lighting in office environment. Expert knowledge and hierarchy searching technique structure the whole system. During initial tests, users are able to use their own design strategies to construct the desired lighting strategies; the effects of system modulation can help users evaluate diversified lighting alternatives.
