Daylight can impact human comfort, emotion, and health, but our building performance models have traditionally evaluated light across a task plane and not from an immersive field-of-view. This presentation will discuss the role of daylight as both a moderator and a stimulant in our experience of architecture. It can enhance our evaluation of space, but it can also have unforeseen effects on our non-visual system – disrupting or entraining circadian cycles.
