    Parsons Summer Intensive Daylighting Design Studio

    Offered after the Parsons Summer Intensive Lighting Design Studio, the Parsons Summer Intensive Daylighting Design Studio can be taken as a stand-alone course, a follow-up to the Parsons Summer Intensive Lighting Design Studio, or a package with the lighting design intensive (two weeks). The daylighting intensive will extend the analysis of the design project sited in New York to exploring daylight availability, fenestration opportunities, and the overall quality of daylighting through physical modeling and the use of the light lab’s heliodon and diffuse sky simulator; analytical techniques will also be discussed. Taught by the full-time faculty in the MFA Lighting Design program, the intensive emphasizes the quality of daylight and its interaction with electric light and lighting controls.
