AbstractThe atrium has become a popular architectural feature in buildings. An atrium provides high marketing value, an environmentally controlled space, natural lighting, and shelter from rain, snow, and wind.1.2 Daylighting represents one of the most aesthetic values of an atrium. However, today's atria are found in continuous need of artificial lighting, or are overlit with excessive solar gains.3.4 This is due to a lack of daylighting prediction tools, which would allow designers to determine at the preliminary design stage the optimal transmittance for daylighting.
