This WP deals with measurement methods for shading and natural lighting systems with the aim of obtaining a procedure scheme for the experimental characterization of advanced facade systems.

Experimental indoor and outdoor test configurations will be developed.

A format will be defined that includes all relevant parameters (visual, thermal, comfort, and control) towards a standard method for models validating and calibrating.


  • T5.1 Visual characterization of facade systems: BSDF generation and glare evaluation

  • T5.2 Thermal characterization of facade systems

  • T5.3 Non-Visual Impact Measurement: Influence of Natural Light
