Architectural Lighting Analysis in Virtual Lighting Laboratory

Speaker(s): 
Date: 
July 7, 2003 - 12:00pm
Location: 
Bldg. 90
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

Virtual Lighting Laboratory is a Radiance-based lighting analysis tool and methodology that proposes transformations in the utilization of computer visualization in lighting analysis and design decision-making. It is a computer environment, where the user has been provided with matrices of illuminance and luminance values extracted from high dynamic range images. The principal idea is to provide the laboratory to the designer and researcher to explore various lighting analysis techniques instead of imposing limited number of predetermined metrics. In addition, it introduces an analysis approach for temporal and spatial lighting variability.  Formation and utilization of virtual meters and lighting analyses are demonstrated through architectural examples.
