This course discusses the benefits of a thoughtfully- designed light control system and how to make it work for your project's natural-lighting and shading needs. The discussion emphases implementing design methods including specification of technologies such as sun shade and canopy systems that creates useful and aesthetically-pleasing daylight systems. Designing to not only minimize solar heat gain and sunlight, but to successfully repurpose it for great environmental and aesthetic function. LEED credits associated with specifying sun shade and daylighting canopy systems are also discussed.
