This presentation was co-presented by Daniel Glaser (LightStanza) with Dane Sanders (Clanton & Associates) and Sukreet Singh (Cuningham Group).

Daylighting classrooms are becoming increasingly significant for providing visual and physiological comfort for occupants, and balancing these needs with energy efficiency. Coordinating LEED v4 and other daylighting metrics (including, why, how, and when to use) is key to this effort. Tradeoffs will be discussed such as how the benefits of fenestration may compete with security and practicality of different types of blinds. Unique perspectives from an architect, consultant, simulation expert, and teacher will be presented through school case studies where daylight analysis were and were not incorporated into the design process to optimize an overall daylighting strategy for the project.
