STATE-OF-THE-ART IN COMPUTER SIMULATED DAYLIGHTING by Henrik Wann Jensen
Henrik Wann Jensen
New advances in computer graphics algorithms make it possible to accurately and rapidly compute the effect of daylighting in the interior of a building. This technology has been implemented by Luxion in the VELUX Visualizer, and it can precisely calculate the effect of daylighting in buildings created by the user. This tool makes it possible to experiment with design, verify, and observe daylighting in completely new ways.
Henrik Wann Jensen is the Chief Scientist at Luxion. He is also associate professor at the University of California in San Diego, where he is teaching computer graphics. He is the author of “Realistic Image Synthesis using Photon Mapping”, AK Peters 2001. In 2004, Henrik Wann Jensen received an Academy Award (Technical Achievement Award) from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for pioneering research in rendering translucent materials.
