My apologies for any cross postings.


Dear all:


Some of you and/or your associates might be interested in a three day
executive education program on 'Daylighting Buildings' that we will be
offering on July 14-16 2010 at Harvard University, Graduate School of
Design. During the three days we will be covering a range of daylighting
design analysis techniques ranging from rules of thumb to
state-of-the-art Radiance simulations and high dynamic range photography
for glare analysis. The main simulation programs used will be
Rhinoceros, SketchUp, and/or Ecotect for CAD modeling as well as
Radiance, Daysim, Evalglare, and Photosphere for climate-based daylight
modeling, glare analysis and solar radiation assessments. To those who
know Grasshopper, we will be showing you how to generate animated
Radiance/Daysim simulations such as the ones on our web site
http://www.gsd.harvard.edu/research/gsdsquare/ABPS.html. Program
participants will further get a paper copy of a new, 50 page document on
daylight simulations. You can sign up for the program at
1838. Feel free to contact me for any content-related questions. Please
contact Ms. Margaret Moore De Chicojay
(margaret_moore_dechicojay at harvard.edu) for any administrational


FYI. There was a long debate on climate-based daylighting metrics at a
recent two day Daylighting Forum in Las Vegas which was attended by
representative from IESNA, AHSRAE, USGBC and other organizations. It
seems likely that some of these organizations will soon introduce such
metrics into their standards and guidelines. So, sign up and stay
