  • Light + Energy Lab

  • Light and Energy Lab
  • The Light + Energy Lab is a space designed for light manipulation to simulate sunlight effects on architectural models. This can be done using our two primary tools – the Diffuse Sky Simulator and the Heliodon. The DSS is a large chamber that can be used to analyze diffuse light conditions and daylight factor, while the Heliodon can be used to analyze direct sunlight on an architectural model.
