  • Course Description: AEC Daily: Daylight and Window Management with Automated Controls



    Learning Objectives:

    Compare traditional daylighting methodologies and automated shading systems in their ability to reduce solar heat gain, maximize daylight exposure, and alleviate brightness and glare to enhance occupant comfort and maintain an optimal visual environment with views to the outdoors.

    Discuss how automated shading and lighting control systems can work together to execute daylighting and daylight harvesting strategies in a workspace to reduce electric lighting, solar heat gain, cooling demands, and peak energy demands through shade management.

    Explain the daily functionality of an automated shading system and its predictive and reactive capability to raise and lower window shades based on the relationship a building has to the sun and the surrounding environment, and needs of the building façade.

    Describe the daylighting and energy savings results realized by The New York Times Building and published in the post occupancy study to demonstrate the impact an automated shading system can have on occupant comfort levels and the overall daylighting performance and energy use of a space.
