The objective of this research project was to evaluate how glazing orientation impacts daylight penetration into a building. A Revit shoebox model of a room containing glazing on a single wall was constructed and Autodesk Insight was used to perform the daylighting analysis. Maximum daylight penetration was achieved when the model was analyzed with glazing orientated toward the east or the west. However, northern and southern glazing orientations produced a more consistent and uniform distribution of daylighting throughout the room. The results demonstrate the importance of glazing orientation when incorporating natural light into a building design.
