Daylighting at the PEC

The PEC offers several tools, resources and classes on the topic of daylighting. We also provide design advice and design assistance with your daylighting project.

Mirror Skybox
The mirror skybox, also known as an overcast sky simulator, is a tool for measuring daylight in physical models. We will assist you in measuring absolute and relative light levels in your physical daylight model.
Daylighting Initiative
The Daylighting Initiative aims: to raise awareness of good daylighting practice within the design community and to improve the practice of daylighting design. Visit this part of the Web site for a set of reports and case studies.
Daylight Models Exhibit
On the second floor of the PEC, we have a set of physical models demonstrating daylighting techniques. Some models are examples of good daylighting strategies, while others are included to demonstrate suboptimal daylight conditions.
