Explore computational tools to model, assess and optimize the daylight within buildings. Learn basic Rhino 3D modeling, daylight simulation script building in Grasshopper, validating daylight compliance with Green Building rating systems and optimizing strategies for enhanced daylight performance. This training program will be conducted online in a unique blended learning format combining live webinar sessions with online self-paced courses.

Learning objectives:

• Explain daylight metrics with confidence
• Work with the computational tools – Grasshopper with Rhino
• Have know-how of environmental plug-ins (Ladybug and Honeybee)
• Understand the impact of materials and RAD parameters on daylight performance
• Understand the daylight simulation script in Grasshopper
• Execute simulations for Daylight Factor, Point-in-time and Annual Daylight Illuminance
• Execute compliance with LEED and ECBC daylight requirements
• Assess design parameters for improved daylight performance

Program takeaways:

• Develop skills of working with computational tools for daylight analysis
• Validate design for compliance with LEED and ECBC
• Technical knowledge of Rhino and Grasshopper - parametric environmental design tools
• Copy of all course materials
• Feedback on assignments
• Interaction with expert faculty to answer your queries
• Certificate on completing the coursework

Program format:

• 1 webinar will be conducted each week covering key topics as per the schedule
• 1 classroom session will be conducted each week to specifically discuss the assignment and
answer queries for hands-on guidance
• Further, online video lessons will be shared that cover more ground about using the
simulation tools. These self-paced modules can be used by learners to follow along at a
convenient pace and work on the exercises
• 1 assignment will be given each week based on the topics covered until that point. The
assignments need to be submitted as per the schedule

This program is designed for:

• Any professional involved in designing buildings
• Architects, green building consultants
• Students studying architecture or related discipline
• Faculty teaching architecture or related discipline
