Daylight Simulation Workshop
Green Light New York
Friday, October 17, 2014 - 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
Join Christoph Reinhart of MIT, for a full-day technical workshop on daylighting simulation using Rhinoceros 5. This workshop is specifically geared towards helping designers and sustainability consultants to learn the basic theory underlying daylight simulations and how to integrate such simulations within their practice.
This workshop compliments his recently published book, Daylight Handbook I, which introduces basic daylight concepts and rules of thumb for urban massing studies. Participants will learn how to conduct a series of simulation exercises including:
- Conducting a LEED 3.0 compliance analysis
- Detecting glare at key positions within a building throughout a year
- Developing suitable automated electric lighting and shading controls to maximize daylight availability while controlling glare
