Project Description

Daylight utilization in built environment would not only reduce energy consumption and CO2 emission, but provide occupants with significant benefits on the ground of psychological and physiological aspects. Daylight planning in the urban scale has become a new trend occurred with the increasing requirements for energy-efficient, healthy and sustainable urban developments. The proposed PhD project aims to investigate the impact of urban models and climate conditions on daylight availability in dense urban areas. Climate-based daylight modelling (CBDM), an innovative daylight simulation method, will be adopted to predict and assess daylighting conditions in planned urban models at various locations across the world. It is anticipated that the project will produce tools and design strategies for urban planners, architects and environmental designers to estimate the potential of daylight utilization in a developing urban area at the earlier stage of urban design and planning.
