Quantifying Daylighting performance now includes more than moment in time simulations.  To answer complex daylighting and glazing questions we need to evaluate designs over the full range of conditions a building is likely to face.  This presentation looks at the simulation and visualization techniques Loisos + Ubbelohde have used to evaluate real world projects.  Using the great work that has been done with rcontrib and the three and five phase methods as well as classic frame by frame simulation as a tool box, each project and the unique problems it poses demands different simulations and visualizations.  Projects include an Artists Studio building,  a public library, an office building and a contemplative center.
