The project will present an investigation on shading systems supported by dynamic lighting to improve learning environments. In schools, students are facing problems regarding glare and occupant’s discomfort with direct sunlight. Shading systems are used to avoid these problems but, creates darkness in the space and therefore it must be supplemented with artificial lighting. In order to improve occupant’s visual comfort, this project is adding a new approach. The method for the project is to work with dynamic lighting by creating different scenario’s based on shading systems. This project introduces a lighting scenario, when the shades are down how we can compensate the sunlight atmosphere inside the space with the support of dynamic lighting.
The project was carried out in 2 educational facilities: Herstedlund skole and Aalborg University, Copenhagen. The main aim is to investigate how can dynamic lighting can support daylight intake when using shading system to prevent glare. One of the targets is to investigate the fact that when shadings are drawn you actually loose some of the potentials of the daylight and I want to find out how I can compensate for this through dynamic electrical light and thereby can assist in creating a natural light atmosphere. In order to improve the learning environments, five experiments was conducted using physical mock ups as well as digital simulation. Qualitative and quantitative methods were applied in order to create and validate the final design proposal.
