This session is presented by Christoph Reinhart via IBPSA University
This talk provides an overview of the use of computer-based
daylight simulations for building and urban design.
Following a review of the history of daylight calculation
methods over the past 100 years, we will focus on the
evolution of daylighting metrics from the daylight factor
to climate-based metrics, interactive glare evaluations and
emerging circadian alertness predictions. The presentation
will close with a series of case studies ranging from
façade detailing to urban zoning studies. Christoph
Reinhart is an Associate Professor in Building Technology
at MIT where he leads the Sustainable Design Lab.
