I am looking for some advice. I am a mere architect, so I have lurked for some time with limited understanding of messages on this list.
I seldom get projects complex enough to require (or finance) proper simulation, but I often think that my planning for sunlight & daylight should be based on more than intuition.
Can anyone recommend information or software to help me? I have invested in the "Planning for Sunlight & Daylight" publication by the Building Research Establishment here in the UK, with its charming transparent protractors, but I would like an easier way of tracking shadow and predicting internal lighting (roughly).
I guess it is the complexity of the building shapes which is the problem. I model projects in Vectorworks (CAD package), and being a designer I use a Mac of course. My work is all near here in London.
Any advice will be gratefully received.
