A Case Study of Daylighting: How Four Different Strategies Were Evaluated at Andrew H. Wilson Elementary School.

Web Abstract: 
Illustrates how four different daylighting strategies were evaluated and implemented in the restoration of Andrew H. Wilson Elementary School, which was significantly damaged in 2005 by Hurricane Katrina. The original school building was built in 1909. Due to the existing building's historic nature, constraint from the urban setting and limited size of the site,a 3-story-addition classroom wing and a 2-story-addition cafeteria and gymnasium were designed with three different daylighting strategies. In addition, a major portion of the existing building faces east and west which drove another unique daylighting strategy.
