Natural Light and Health in Urban Environments
This project will explore human perception and health as impacted by access to natural light. An interdisciplinary team will assess advanced building glazing technologies in urban settings in terms of light quantity, visual comfort, spatial perception, and sense of well-being. A full-scale, experimental module will allow human beings to occupy and assess the luminous environment. Research will be conducted in conjunction with an ongoing studio on Tall-Building Design at the North Carolina State University (NCSU) School of Architecture.
