Project description:

Spectral Sky Models

The main goal of this project is to develop data-driven spectral sky models to be able to integrate daylight in the design of urban structures that support people’s well-being. The spatially resolved spectral sky models represent the orientation depending spectral characteristics of daylight and are derived from spatially resolved spectral measurements collected at the daylight measuring site of the Technische Universität Berlin, one of the few measuring sites in the world gathering this kind of data.

Spectral Characteristics of Daylight on Façades

Subsequently, the spectral sky models will be used to conduct a large parameter study on the impact of building orientation, existing daylighting conditions and urban obstruction proprieties. The spectral characteristics of daylight on the façade will be represented in daylight potential diagrams. The outcome of the parameter study will be used to reach out to urban planners and lighting designers, to create awareness and provide them with design guidelines to implement lighting design strategies for people’s well-being.

This research is supported by Velux Stiftung.
