Natural light stimulates people's circadian clocks, keeping activities synchronized with the day-night cycle. How can building design satisfy occupants' biological and psychological need for natural light, while also balancing issues of glare, thermal comfort, and energy savings? Dragana Rogulja and Holly Samuelson will discuss the importance of light in both daily life and built environments, as well as its impact on overall well-being.

Part of the What's Light Got to Do With It? Lecture Series, presented in partnership with the Harvard Brain Science Initiative and the Harvard Art Museums.
