GSD Executive Education Course: Daylighting Buildings

This course focuses on daylighting in an architectural context, stressing the integration of daylight with other sustainable design concerns such as solar gain control, electric lighting energy use, and occupant comfort, demonstrating how they can collectively act as form-givers for architecture. It also reviews the latest research on visual and nonvisual effects of light on human well-being and alertness. Participants acquire a range of daylighting design analysis techniques, from rules of thumb to state-of-the-art computer simulations and high-dynamic-range photography for glare analysis, and will apply the newly acquired techniques to ongoing projects of their own.

Instructors: Christoph Reinhart, Associate Professor of Building Technology, MIT; Steven Lockley, PhD, Associate Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School.
