It is now widely recognised that the half-century old basis of current daylighting guidelines is long overdue for revision, and that new metrics founded on realistic, climate-based measures of daylight are needed. In this Workshop, the audience will be invited to contribute to a discussion on the formulation of new daylight metrics that will meet their requirements as a stakeholder, be they building occupant, architect, engineer, etc.
The four presentations will set the scene for each of the discussion sessions, focussing on issues such as: composition of the metrics (e.g. illuminance and/or luminance quantities), computational practicalities and enduser tools.
John Mardaljevic, BSc, MPhil, PhD, Institute of Energy and Sustainable Development at De Montfort University, The Gateway, Leicester. Has a first degree in physics, and MPhil in astrophysics and a PhD in daylight simulation. His first significant contribution in the field of daylight modelling was the validation of the Radiance Lighting System under real sky conditions.
