Cloud based daylight simulations #3

This is part 3 of a 3 part blog on cloud based daylight simulations and is a review for the daylight and energy tool – Sefaira. (Read Part 1 and […]

Cloud based daylight simulations #2

This is part 1 of the 3 part blog post about cloud rendering. Lightstanza is a simple online tool that works by uploading 3D models made (or imported) from Sketchup. As of […]

Cloud based daylight simulations #1

Integrative design process has become an essential part of the sustainable architecture practice. There are increasing discussions of incorporating daylight, energy and other simulations and analysis in the early design phases […]

Custom schedules for Daylight Autonomy simulations

Daylight in buildings can be measured in many different ways, out of which daylight autonomy gives the closest approximation of the quantity of daylight in any space. Any daylight simulation […]

Energy Simulation Plug-ins for Revit

With our continued efforts in enhancing sustainability in all our projects, we have been looking into early-design daylight and energy analysis. Since LMN loves Revit, we tested 3 energy simulation […]

CNC Site Models

Physical models are an important part of our design process.  They are highly effective for conveying complex spatial relationships to a large group of individuals and they tend to engage […]

Revit Daylighting Tools 2: ElumTools

LMNts reviews ElumTools new daylighting ability


Last week LMNts traveled to Los Angeles for ACADIA 2014, the leading conference devoted to advanced computational design in architecture.  While we did not prepare any papers or lead any workshops this year, […]

Revit Daylighting Tools 1: Autodesk’s Lighting Analysis Extension

One of the most popular posts on this site is “DIVA is Awesome and Everyone Should Use it.” Since that post, Diva has become our staple daylighting tool, but not […]

Suzhou Space

Before starting at LMN, I lived in China for over three years, where I became fascinated by the classical gardens of Suzhou. These gardens, unique to southern China, are populated […]
