Course Description

This course emphasizes the science and practice of using daylight as a source of interior light. The course material covers daylight availability, delivery systems, computations, integration with other building systems and application of prediction models. Analysis and methods include the effect of daylighting in enclosed architectural spaces on illumination levels, visual performance, thermal loads and energy. Classroom exercises include physical sky models, sunshading exercises, application of predictive models and performance evaluations of daylighting in case studies or site visits. Equivalent to a one-term professional elective in the Architectural Science Program. (Equivalent to one Professional elective from Table I, see Undergraduate Program Calendar.)


Prerequisites: CDID 501, CDID 502, CDID 503, and CDID 504
