IESNA Daylighting Tour Event in LA

May 21, 2014

IESNA Daylighting Tour Event in LAChristopher Meek, AIA, IES is Research Associate Professor of Architecture at the University of Washington and a registered architect. He is co-Director of the Integrated Design Lab (IDL) at the University’s College of Built Environments. In this role, he consults with design teams in the Pacific Northwest and nationally with a focus on building energy performance, daylighting, visual comfort, electric lighting, and climate responsive design. Mr. Meek teaches graduate and undergraduate level courses on building design, daylighting, electric lighting, and indoor environmental quality at the UW Department of Architecture. His research has been funded by the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance, regional utilities, New Buildings Institute, and the National Science Foundation. Prior to joining the faculty at the University of Washington he practiced in architecture offices in Washington State, New Mexico, and New Orleans, LA.

Designing with daylight requires the interplay of form, space, and materiality derived from the influence of site, climate, regional culture, and the distinct requirements of specific visual tasks. Daylight can make our buildings healthier and more energy efficient, however, designing effective, comfortable daylit buildings remains a challenge. This ninety-minute seminar will concisely cover design concepts and strategies toward daylighting success that designers can immediately employ in their practice. These concepts will be illustrated by case studies in that represent fundamental activities of daylight design. Project objectives will be described and key components will be evaluated using state-of the-art performance metrics. Discussion topics will include: Why daylight is important in buildings, programming and criteria development for daylighting design, and examples design strategies and simulation techniques. Special attention will be given to the local climate.
