Kevin Van Den Wymelenberg is an associate professor at the University of Oregon, where he directs the Energy Studies in Buildings Laboratory. He is also the chair of the IES's Daylight Metrics Committee.
Adopted by the Illuminating Engineering Society, Spatial Daylight Autonomy and Annual Sunlight Exposure allow designers to quantify and compare the success of daylit spaces.
Research supports daylighting's positive effect on building performance and human health.
There often is a tension between lighting designers who focus on daylighting design and those who concentrate on electric lighting design.
Building a common daylight language will dramatically facilitate the necessary dialogue between architect, lighting designer, client, and contractor.
