Architecture is associated with increased levels of complexity and technical knowledge, but this should not imply the lack of intuitive inspiration. Tactile experiences favour an explicit knowledge of the importance of space, matter and the location of opacity in relation to daylight. The qualitative and quantitative evaluation of daylighting design intentions should be at the forefront of creative thinking in architecture and environmental design. Analysing images obtained from actual spaces and physical models in relation to the latest digital technologies can reinforce the interpretation of daylighting design and performance of a spatial configuration at the speculative stage of composition. This presentation focuses on a design methodology based on image analysis and tactile manipulations using digital and analogical techniques applied to actual architectural projects.
