A Design Decision Support Tool for Visual Comfort Evaluation under Daylighting Conditions
The goal of this research is to improve design decisionmaking through the representation of daylighting visual discomfort. A design assistance framework is proposed to evaluate a given space from the visual comfort perspective. The case study application examined a transitional daylit space in a museum where outcomes showed tool adequacy to evaluate visual comfort. The research outcomes are expected to provide designers and decisionmakers with an approach for designing and re-imagining spaces to improve visual comfort and space quality.
