Traditional Glass Requires Compromises
In a continuously changing environment, traditional glazing features are well known, deeply analyzed and fixed. Using traditional glass to determine the tradeoff between light transmission and heat compromises to balance Heat, Glare and Energy must be made. Historically shades and blinds are most common way that architects accept as only available solution.
In a study by the USGBC, shades remained shut 59% of the time in 75% of buildings studied. This makes preplanned daylighting irrelevant since natural light is not being utilized as expected. Building performance also suffers or is lower than planned if blinds stay shut. Blinds are unsanitary and costly to maintain.
