Integration Of Lighting Performance Indicators Into A Dashboard For Daylighting Assessments

Maria Beatriz PIDERIT MORENO, Daniela BESSER

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to develop an integrated graph able to communicate to the designer -which is not specialist in lighting- a rating of the different indicators having significance when evaluating the daylighting conditions within a space, specifically, within classrooms. This graph integrates six daylighting performance indicators through a dashboard, allowing comparing a base situation with new architectural solutions. The dashboard has a five level performance scale, using colours in order to rate from the optimum until the most unfavourable scenario, translating a big amount of data and indicators into a single diagram. The different classroom’s daylighting strategies were then summarized using the proposed dashboard, which allowed comparing the different daylighting performances achieved when using the proposed strategies.
