The biggest barrier to daylighting (or anything new) is fear of the unknown. Buildings cost too much to be experimental. The purpose of demonstration sites is to display simple, repeatable models of success. The sites represent a “catalog” of effective, straightforward solutions that may be selected and copied for common daylighting applications. These sites are the cornerstones of the “why-do” and “how-to” activities of the Daylighting Collaborative.
As the sites progress, photographs, design information, and product information will be used to create case studies. In addition, information on visiting the sites will be provided.
