Day lighting systems

May 12, 2020

Two sun-tracking daylight collectors are placed on the roof to collect daytime sunlight. Mechanical
devices with mirrors follow the sun to increase light collection. Collected sunlight is funneled into a tube
within the ceiling of the Field Station’s rooms, providing natural lighting to the core of the building.
“Conventional” perimeter clerestory windows with fixed louvres admit diffuse sky light while blocking
the heat of direct sunlight
