Session VI:

Illuminating Savings: Daylighting and Integrated Lighting Strategies

Lighting constitutes 29 percent of a typical American office building’s energy load. Proper lighting is critical to occupant comfort and productivity—and an exploration of daylighting and efficient artificial lighting is an exploration of integrated design. This session will explore natural light as part of a site’s resource inventory, and identify strategies for maximizing its application while controlling for glare and unwanted heat gain. It will couple this discussion with the latest research and application of artificial lighting choices designed to meet residual lighting needs.

AIA+2030 Learning Objectives

  • Evaluate various building forms and orientations for optimal daylighting potential.
  • Compare competing designs to determine the most effective approach to daylighting.
  • Assess a lighting scheme for its compatibility with an accompanying daylighting design.
