Weekday Online Webinar: Inspiring Applications of Tubular Daylighting

June 9, 2020 @ 10:00 am 11:00 am



Live Online Webinar

Using tubular daylighting devices has traditionally been thought of only as a functional way to bring natural light into building design and overcome limitations of windows and traditional skylights (commonly used techniques for side and top lighting, respectively).

However, architects encounter lighting challenges from not only a practical, but also an aesthetic (design) standpoint and are now exploring how TDDs can be used as a design tool.

This session will study inspiring applications of Tubular Daylighting Devices (TDDs) around the world that deliver natural light into unique spaces and/or create visually appealing natural lighting to complement an overall design. By merging both form and function, architects can create inspiring environments that also meet the health, safety, welfare as well as sustainability goals for the building.

Learning Objectives:

1) Understand how TDDs can be used as an effective daylighting strategy differently than windows and skylights

2) Discover the role TDDs can play with health, safety, and welfare of building occupants

3) Review how TDDs can be used as a daylighting strategy for sustainability and energy efficiency initiatives

4) Explore how TDDs can be implemented in inspiring and innovative ways with both design and functional objectives being met
