title Applying Daylighting Simulation in Architectural Studio Education
source Promise and Reality: State of the Art versus State of Practice in Computing for the Design and Planning Process [18th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9523687-6-5] Weimar (Germany) 22-24 June 2000, pp. 255-258
summary Computer generated simulation results are not necessarily valid design solutions. In some cases, unscientific “simulation” applications have misled designers to believe the “illusion” rendered by the system. This paper presents two case studies to highlight the pedagogy of architectural daylighting simulation. Both are located in Hong Kong’s highdensity urban context. Hong Kong is a small city, covering 1,097 square km with a population of 6.8 million. Mountains and hills dominate the topography, and more than 70% of the land is reserved for country parks. Property constraints encourage dense, high-rise construction and building on steep slopes. This creates a complex environment for daylighting design. Although the Buildings Ordinance specifies minimum standards for natural light and ventilation, residents have complained about the deterioration of their lighting condition in recent years. Challenged by the constraints imposed by Hong Kong’s physical environment, there is a need for students and professionals to explore computer simulation to integrate daylighting strategy into architectural and urban design.
