Diva Day Presentation

Back in July, Erick Katzenstein presented at Diva Day, a daylighting simulation forum held at Thornton Tomasetti’s office in New York.  The day hosted a wide range of great presentations from academics and professionals, all of which are now posted on Diva4Rhino’s website.


Our presentation is embedded below, which focuses on using daylighting in a parametric modeling process. Definitely check out some of the others here:
