Abstract: Utilization of natural light has been recognized to be valuable in achieving buildings with energy efficiency and in enhancing visual quality of interior spaces. This research evaluates the daylight performance of threeselected zone in an educational building in Tirana, Albania. The study explores the building geometry, orientation, glazing transmittance and window to wall ratio parameters on indoor daylight distribution. Radiance daylight software is used to simulate the horizontal illuminance (E) and high dynamic range luminance images (L) Simulation model incorporates detailed information of the building geometry, materials and transparency, to generate a finiteelement simulation model.
