What is daylighting? What are the different types of lighting design? How is it beneficial to the public and the environment?
This webinar will introduce key concepts in the use of daylighting within exterior covered structures and within the design of vertical hardscape. The term daylighting, typically applied to use within buildings, describes a concept of the use of design techniques to use reflection, opening placement, with lighting control integration, will be discussed in the context of the design of hardscape outdoors.
The integration of solar angles, wind movement, shadows, shade, all impact thermal comfort of a space. Through strategic placement of conceptual techniques of daylighting, including strategic placement of opening in walls, or other vertical structures can influence the thermal comfort of the space. The use of reflective elements such as water can be used within night lighting to reduce needed lighting to achieve the needed design and safety considerations. Examples will be presented to illustrate the concepts.
