Webinar: MASA Architectural Canopies presents, Daylighting by Design
Wed March 17, 2021 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
1 HSW credit; 1 GBCI credit
Zoom registration required
Course description: 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 re-purpose it for great environmental and aesthetic function. LEED credits associated with specifying sun shades and daylighting canopy systems are also discussed.
- Discuss the role of sun shades devices in passive design and identify how canopies and awnings can contribute to a holistic sustainable building envelope.
- Identify which LEED credits sun shades and architectural canopies might contribute towards.
- Define daylighting and discuss its role in positive building design, while identifying the benefits of properly controlled natural light.
- List design considerations for glass and polycarbonate canopy systems.
