Introduction to Daylight Design

Guest Lecture

Introduction to Daylight Design was a guest lecture I gave at the Singapore Polytechnic. It was part of their elective course in Sustainable Design—Performance-based parametric design—for students training for their Diploma in Architecture. The lecture was three parts covering: measuring and quantifying daylight, qualitative aspects of daylight and visual comfort, and daylight metrics and validation methods.

Topics Covered

  • Daylight and Energy
  • Daylight and Climate
  • Daylight Simulation
  • Daylight Metrics
  • Designing with Light
