Building occupants continue to push for more daylight and views from their buildings. Designers increasingly need to understand the basics of daylight in order to deliver. However, daylighting can come with trade-offs, such as risk of glare and thermal discomfort, which also needs to be managed to satisfy occupants. This presentation will provide a primer on daylighting along with guidance on how dynamic glazing can help deliver proper daylight while effectively managing the trade-offs.
Learning Objectives - After viewing this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Define the key principles of daylighting design.
- Explain how dynamic glass can effectively address the trade-off between creating sufficient daylight illumination, minimizing cooling loads, and achieving occupant visual comfort.
- Describe how effective zoning can provide optimum balance between glare control, daylight admission, light color quality, and energy performance.
- Understand the implications of manual glare-control devices and why an automatic response is necessary for delivering the expected daylighting and energy performance in a building.
