Outreach Lectures in Paris 2019
Daylight Symposium, held every second year since 2005, is an internationally recognized event focusing on daylight research, education, practices and policy making. The 8th Daylight Symposium maintained its broad architectural agenda related to daylight, while sharing new ground-breaking research within a like-minded community.
The program consisted of a mix of invited speakers and selected submitted papers related to daylight, building performance and human health, as well as architectural case studies.
The event was organised by The VELUX Group.

On 8 November, the laureates visited The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts School of Architecture (KADK). Per Olaf Fjeld and Florence Lam – both members of The Daylight Award Jury – moderated this event.
Steven Holl and Marilyne Andersen gave two inspiring lectures on their work within daylight in architecture and daylight research at both events. The lectures were free and open to anyone with an interest in daylight research and architecture and over 500 people attended the lectures.

The events were organised by The VELUX Foundations, ETH Zurich and KADK and realised in collaboration with local partners.
