Dagslys

Den rolle, dagslys spiller i vores liv, kan ikke overvurderes, og det har fået os til at gennemgå omfattende dagslysforskning gennem årene. Denne forskning har gjort det muligt for os at fremhæve en række centrale emner, som handler om, hvordan anvendelsen af ​​dagslys kan forvandle en bygning indefra og øge trivslen og forbedre brugernes liv.

The experience of light

A considerable body of research shows that people prefer daylit spaces to those lacking natural light. Why should this be? If there is sufficient light to see, why would people prefer one source to another? To answer this question, we need to understand the evolved relationship between humans and natural light.

Starry sky

When viewing the night sky, most of us feel an intimate connection to the universe. Yet starry skies and moonlit nights have become increasingly rare for city-dwellers today. Given the harm that too much light at night is inflicting on human beings and ecosystems, it is time to reconsider our relationship to the ‘nocturnal side’ of our lives and our culture. − By Paul Bogard, a writer and assistant professor of English at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia, USA.

Daylight in the built-up environment

Over the last one and a half centuries, artificial light and the restructuring of working times have seemingly ‘liberated’ us from the diurnal cycles of light and dark that nature imparts on us. Yet recent research has shown that this separation from nature comes at a considerable cost, causing health and social problems. A reconnection to the rhythms of nature is therefore needed – and this will also have a profound influence on architecture.

All over the world, natural daylight has been exchanged for artificial light forms at the expense of our health and even productivity. With better building design, though, we can reclaim the daylight and improve well-being and performance.

How do you design and operate a healthy building? Answers to these questions can be found in an increasing number of methodologies and rating schemes that have seen the light around the world in recent years. They all share the ambition to strengthen the health and well-being of building users. Yet, they vary widely in terms of their overall scope, the metrics they use as proof of performance, and the weight that they put on the different phases in a building’s life cycle. The following chronological overview presents a selection of the most important and forward-looking tools, as well as their underlying methodologies.

To truly enhance human well-being, building design needs to move beyond optimising single parameters such as temperature and humidity, to more holistic approaches that take their cues in health-supporting human behaviours. Based on the Five Ways to Well-Being that have recently been established by scientists, this article outlines the way architects can consider these parameters in the designs they carry out, in order to nudge building users into a healthier way of living.

While the science of well-being is relatively nascent, the UK Government’s ‘Foresight’ project sheds a great deal of light on five factors that have a proven effect on well-being¹, leading to the definition of the Five Ways to Well-Being (connect, keep active, take notice, keep learning, give).² The question remains, though, how do we design buildings that can positively affect on these five parameters?

Den nye europæiske standard EN 17037 omhandler dagslys i bygninger. Den blev udgivet i slutningen af 2018 og er den første europæiske standard, der udelukkende har fokus på design og tilførsel af dagslys i bygninger.

Den nye europæiske standard for dagslysdesign omfatter fire forskellige områder: dagslystilgang i rum, vurdering af udsyn til omgivelser, adgang til sollys, reduktion af blænding.

Den nye europæiske standard for dagslysdesign i bygninger, EN 17037, er skrevet, så den kan anvendes på enhver bygning. De designområder, der er omfattet af standarden, og fleksibiliteten for designerne til at vælge, hvilket niveau der ønskes, betyder, at de indvendige rum kan designes, så de passer til de tilsigtede aktiviteter.
