Designing with daylight requires the interplay of form, space, and materiality derived from the influence of site, climate, regional culture, and the distinct requirements of specific visual tasks. This intermediate level program will address both the unique theatrical opportunities daylight and well-conceived controls can bring to a space, as well as address technical analyses techniques and state-of-the-art performance metrics. Christopher Meek will provide case studies to show how a specific set concepts and practices for daylight designs will provide energy-efficient, visually comfortable buildings that successfully use daylight as a functional light source.

IES and AIA credits available.
