title The Application of Daylighting Software for Case-study Design in Buildings

summary The application of different software, whether simple or complex, can each play a significant role in the design and decision-making on daylighting for a building. This paper, discusses the task to be accomplished, in real case studies, and how various lighting software programs are used to achieve the desired information. The message iterated throughout the paper is one that respects, and even suggests, the use of even the simplest software, that can guide and inform design decisions in daylighting. Daylighting can be complex since the position of the sun varies throughout the day and year as well as do the sky conditions for a particular location. Just because we now have the computing capacity to model every single minute of a day throughout a year, doesn't justify its task. Several projects; an architecture studio, a university office building, a school library and a gymnasium all present different tasks to be achieved. The daylighting problems, the objects and the software application and their outcomes are presented in this paper. Over a decade of projects has led to reflecting upon the importance of computing in daylighting, its staged approach and the result that it can achieve if properly applied.
