John started off the second day as well, this time giving us a little history on the Daylight Coefficient method and some of the other climate-based techniques he's helped to develop.

DSC_6669 DSC_6669.JPG
Merete spoke about a "light flow meter" developed at Wellington (NZ).

DSC_6676 DSC_6676.JPG
Francesco spoke about climate-based modeling and a visualization system he has extended for daylighting design (OpenDX).

DSC_6679 DSC_6679.JPG
Thomas discussed a system he and Francesco have developed for lighting analysis using Radiance from within Blender.

DSC_6683 DSC_6683.JPG
Andrew discussed optimization and visualization methods being used at Arup.

DSC_6684 DSC_6684.JPG
Guilio, also from Arup, explained some more advanced optimization techniques for building design.

DSC_6686 DSC_6686.JPG
Philip spoke about design applications of Radiance from Arup in Australia, though he's now joined the others in London.

DSC_6688 DSC_6688.JPG
Don gave a demonstration of their Integrated Environmental Solutions (IES) product.

DSC_6689 DSC_6689.JPG
