Learn about the latest advanced optical daylighting technology and a new product category – the Tubular Daylighting Device (TDD) which makes daylighting a space as easy as applying traditional lighting equipment. After a brief overview of typical daylighting strategies and key energy- and human performance-based reasons for daylighting today’s buildings, the audience is introduced to the three technology zones that are common to every TDD. Commercially-available component-technologies are compared and contrasted, allowing the designer to make informed decisions when choosing the appropriate TDD technology for their application.


Learning Objectives

  1. Understand why daylight is so important and identify the reasons for using daylight in commercial environments.
  2. Identify the available Daylighting Strategies and identify their advantages and disadvantages.
  3. Be able to describe the three technology zones that make up Tubular Daylighting Devices (TDDs.)
  4. Be able to list the tools and resources available to help incorporate TDDs into projects.


About the Presenter

Howard Holko

Howard Holko has performed as an architectural consultant for over 25 years. Over the last 20 years his primary focus has been on daylighting design which is the controlled admission of natural light into a building to reduce electric lighting and saving energy. The connection to the dynamic and perpetually evolving patterns of outdoor illumination, daylighting helps create a visually stimulating and productive environment for building occupants. A few additional benefits that are derived from day lit building for its occupants are increased productivity, reduced absences, enhanced learning abilities and better overall health.
