Window view quality and daylighting

Windows and view quality represent a vital field of study at the nexus of the building envelope, occupant experience, and energy performance. Recent studies show multiple positive effects of window views on occupants, but there are few design guidelines for assessing window view quality. 

Existing guidelines are often not supported by comprehensive and conclusive research findings. In response to these problems, this presentation introduces a view quality assessment framework, a proposed design index, and a review of simulation methods for window view quality. This presentation will also summarize research gaps in current assessment and simulation methods.
