Dan Weissman of Lam Partners, has published a paper offering both a daylighting design process and a successful case study of “EC” (electrochromic) glazing paired with a dynamic follow-the-sun control system.  The heliotropic shading control system keeps the illuminance levels from daylight at task plane below a set threshold year-round.  A key benefit of using electrically tintable glass to support the archival needs when lighting rare and light-sensitive artifacts, is EC glazing’s minimal impact on views – improving occupant well-being in buildings. The article is published in LEUKOS with full access, available for download here.
