DAYLIGHT IN BUILDINGS: GETTING THE DETAILS RIGHT (HSW) (TOPIC 1409)
This session is intended to instruct on the process of creating high quality and comfortable day-lit spaces focuses on getting the details right. After the schematic design is formed to appropriately deliver daylight to the important surfaces within a space, there are several details that can make or break the overall success of the project. This presentation discussed several details, ranging from interior surface colors and reflectance, to interior space layouts, furniture design, window details (including glazing specifications), and shading strategies. The presentation introduces concepts of lighting control systems to ensure that energy is saved from the inclusion of daylight.
DAYLIGHT PERFORMANCE METRICS FOR HUMAN HEALTH, PRODUCTIVITY, AND SATISFACTION (HSW) (TOPIC 1408)
Daylight can breathe light and life into our buildings. Daylight can also make our buildings healthier and more energy efficient. However, designing effective, comfortable, and daylit buildings remains outside the capabilities of most designers. This session will discuss the impacts of daylight on humans in the built environment, the metrics associated with effective daylighting, and the tools available for designing daylight spaces with these metrics. It will highlight both the physical and psychological effects of daylight on the human visual and biological system and what can be feasibly achieved in terms of positive impacts upon worker productivity and improved user satisfaction.
