Design Process

Extensive photometric modeling was done to study the interaction between the electric lighting and daylight availability, which informed the lighting controls design.  In addition, since we were attempting to minimize lighting energy loads without sacrificing quality of the design, calculations to determine lighting levels were integral to the design process.  Above, pseudocolor rendering of the Children’s section under daylight, and full-color rendering of electric lighting.
