Daylighting and Integrated Lighting Design | Course 6
Electric lighting accounts for a significant portion of a typical building’s energy load. Daylighting can be intergrated with efficient artificial lighting to provide occupant comfort and productivity in buildings of all types, while minimizing energy consumption. This course will identify strategies for maximizing natural light, while controlling for glare and unwanted heat gain.
It's based on the highly successful AIA+2030 Professional Series, which was created by AIA Seattle and Architecture 2030, with support from the City of Seattle and Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance.
