VELUX Daylight Symposium

    London, 2-3 September 2015
    6th VELUX Daylight Symposium


    Daylight as a driver of change

    Researchers, architects and other building professionals is meeting in London on 2-3 September 2015 for the 6th VELUX Daylight Symposium. This year’s Symposium will explore the potential of daylight to drive change in the way we think and design living environments.


    One of the key themes to be discussed by researchers and practitioners is how architecture can stimulate health, comfort and happiness, and how architecture can adapt to changing daily and seasonal conditions by interacting with our senses and biological rhythms.

    Key speakers such as artist Olafur Eliasson, David Nelson from Foster + Partners and Paul Bogard from James Madison University will address these issues from a wide range of different perspectives and applications.

    The topics of the 2015 Symposium range from ‘daylight and life in the cities’ to ‘daylighting design and practice’ and ‘how daylight affects human health, well-being and learning capabilities’.

    ”We arrange The Daylight Symposium every second year as part of our commitment to advance the role of daylight and indoor climate quality in order to improve human health and well-being inside buildings.

    Since the first Daylight Symposium in 2005, we have seen the Symposium grow into a leading international forum for sharing of daylight research and practices. 

    We look very much forward to this 6th international gathering, and we are happy to be able to present new research, experiences and viewpoints from research, engineering and architectural practice at the 2015 London Symposium”

    The Daylight Site
    The Daylight Site is run and facilitated by VELUX A/S. We support research concerning the impact of daylight and windows on the visual environment and our well-being.

    With the site we have created a forum to stimulate the growing Worldwide interest in daylighting through an ongoing dialogue among building professionals. 

    The VELUX Daylight Symposiums, held every second year since 2005, represent a vital part of the site with an overview over presentations, papers and articles.
