Combining Past and Current Daylighting Design Methods to Facilitate Student Design Experience

by John Sloane
In academic environments, new technology and digital methods govern curricula to keep students on the cutting edge, while pre-digital, or physical, design methods are often forgotten. However, the combination of digital and physical daylighting design methods can result in more innovative and integrated building solutions. This student engagement experience uses a Heliodon daylighting apparatus to allow students to translate digital models into a scaled physical models to evaluate daylighting performance in the built environment.
