Title: Lightbox: Dynamic Daylighting in a Portable Gallery System
Author: Caldwell, Louis
Abstract: This thesis explores the qualities of daylight in a portable gallery environment by suggesting alternatives for how light interacts with art. Daylight is manipulated through a dynamic shading system to generate multiple interpretations of a single piece or collection of art. These scenes are then are analyzed through digital simulations and designed to reflect a set of lighting guidelines. The daylighting system works in conjunction with a modular building system that is designed to provide maximum portability with minimal on-site construction. The result is the development of a highly adaptable universal gallery with the ability to be located on a variety of sites and tailored to meet the specific needs of the exhibits on display.
