Integrated Design Lab

The Integrated Design Lab, formerly known as the Daylighting Lab, was started over a decade ago as an element of the Lighting Design Lab in Seattle, WA. With the support of Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance’s BetterBricks Lab Network, state agencies, and the public universities, the original lab in Seattle has expanded into a network of labs across Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana.

The staff consists of lighting consultants and student interns from the UW who are always happy to help other UW students with their lighting questions. Students can contact IDL staff to use the facilities.

Facilities at the IDL include: a Lighting Demonstration Area; a Heliodon for examining how direct sunlight interacts with an architect's building design; an Overcast Sky Simulator; a Mock-up Room for testing electric lighting ideas; and a Lighting Classroom for lectures and discussions.
