Lake Kee Bsc (Hons) Arch Tech My thesis explored the daylight design and daylight strategies of aproposed community building in Clongriffin, Dublin. Two methods were used toperform the daylight analysis on the building. They were the Daylight FactorCalculation using the Ecotect software and the analysis of the illuminance level inthe building using images generated by the RADIANCE software. The results of bothmethods were then compared. The best daylight design strategy was applied usingthe results.
