Physical Modeling

The Integrated Design Lab | Bozeman uses physical models with the overcast sky simulator and heliodon table to simulate interior illumination conditions. 

Solar charts allow us to track the sun's movement, and allow for accurate simulations of direct solar design implecations. 

Comparing the results of the physical model to the results of the digital model allows for us to verify our analysis, and provide a variety images of illumination conditions to the architect.
