What are the important glazing and daylighting factors to consider on
projects? From daylighting to color rendering, several experts will present
case studies and best practices. Presentations will include:


*Daylight Dimming (Stephen Wasilewski, Loisis +Ubbelode):*resolving
daylight/electric lighting zoning with thermal zones, and capturing
accurate daylight dimming schedules

*Optical Properties of Glass (Michael Martinez, Integral Group): *the
complex relationship between visual and experiential aspects of a building,
including daylighting and color rendering

*Direct Sun/Glare Study using Ladybug (Maria Grimm, WSP Parsons
Brinckerhoff): *study of an office space experiencing direct sun from
several sources
4. *Architectural (Day)Lighting for Circadian Health (Antony Kim, UC
Berkeley): *Basics, Current Research, and Future Implications on
Simulating for Building Performance


*Stephen Wasilewski (Loisos + Ubbelohde)*: Stephen is a licensed architect
and holds a Master of Architecture from the University of California,
Berkeley. As an associate at Loisos + Ubbelohde, Stephen manages
daylighting and electric lighting projects and specializes in lighting
simulation. He has developed numerous workflows for complex simulation
using Radiance, Python and Rhino/Grasshopper, including studying the
intensity of building scale solar convergences, comparative annual
simulations, custom light fixtures and innovative lighting designs.

*Michael Martinez (Integral Group)*: Mike is an associate principal at
Integral Group. His expertise is in daylighting design and analysis using
both physical and computational models, specializing in the digital
simulation of light to accurately predict its quantitative and qualitative
effects in the built environment. Mike?s constant goal is to inform the
design process with clear and actionable data to maximize human comfort in
buildings, to minimize the energy consumed by buildings, and to generate
beautiful, sustainable, and long lasting architecture.

*Maria Grimm (WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff)*: Maria has an undergraduate and
graduate degree in architecture with a focus in climatic-responsive design.
She has 6 years? experience in high performance design with WSP?s Built
Ecology team. Maria specializes in indoor environmental quality including
daylight design and analysis, thermal comfort, and passive systems. Maria
is also an expert in data visualization and enjoys finding ways to convey
complex ideas using graphic design.

*Antony Kim (UC Berkeley)*: Antony Kim is a Ph.D. Building Science student
at U.C. Berkeley. He is currently a staff student researcher at the Center
for the Built Environment working on IEQ tools for circadian lighting; he
was formerly a researcher with the Center for Resource Efficient
Communities where he worked on the non-energy benefits of building
energy-efficiency for the CEC; and he was formerly a Schmidt-MacArthur
Fellow working to investigate lighting for a circular economy with Philips
