New Buildings Institute in partnership with the University of Idaho and University of Washington has developed a freely available interactive tool for the design of proven daylighting strategies in a variety of building types. Users will be introduced to the Daylighting Pattern Guide while exploring the inter-relationship of sky, site, aperture, and space planning. The guide uses a combination of built examples and advanced simulation to set the stage for substantial reductions in lighting power consumption and overall energy use through successful daylighting design.
