Daylightful indoors – what we see and what we perceive
27 April at 11:30 – 12:30 CEST
Centre for Healthy Indoor Environments Seminarium
Or on Zoom
Speaker: Prof. Marilyne Andersen from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland
Seminar is free of charge for all interested, registration is required
About the speaker:
Marilyne Andersen is a professor at EPFL and Head of the Laboratory of Integrated Performance in Design (LIPID). With a background in physics, her research focuses on performance as a driver for design with an emphasis on daylight. She was previously a professor at MIT, and has been the Dean of the School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering at EPFL. She was the inaugural laureate of the Daylight Research Award in 2016 and is the co-founder of the consulting startup OCULIGHT dynamics.
About the seminar:
Natural light greatly impacts how a building is experienced by its occupants. It affects their well-being, notably from their health and biological clock perspectives, but also their perceived visual and thermal comfort, or their emotional response. This lecture will explore current research efforts aiming towards a deeper integration of daylighting performance and indoor comfort in design, by reaching out to various fields of science, from chronobiology and neuroscience to psychophysics and computer graphics to support the design of places of delightful – and daylightful – living.
