March 2022: Daylighting Through Time - Concepts and Misconceptions
Join us for a presentation by Architects Mili and Alfonso that dives into the historical evolution of daylighting and daylight design. The pair will discuss the earliest uses of daylighting in the ancient world and the progression from the pre-computer days of hand sketching to the current world requiring metrics, computational workflows, and health and wellness oriented approaches. This cross-discipline talk is sure to inspire no matter your position within the industry.
Mili Kyropoulou is an Assistant Professor at the at the Gerald D. Hines School of Architecture and Design at the University of Houston. She is a registered architect in the UK and in Greece and a LEED Accredited Professional.

She has studied and/or worked in 5 countries, which has resulted in built work, projects and proposals in the US, Europe, the UK, Africa, Latin America, Russia, the Middle East and East Asia. The analysis scope for each project ranges from climate evaluation and strategies/benchmark outline, daylight studies, energy & thermal analysis, solar form finding, performance parametrics, urban thermal comfort, and high performance / net zero building design. Mili has published and presented in several international conferences such as PLEA, SimAUD, Façade Tectonics and Advanced Building Skins.
Alfonso is an architect and a Building Performance Specialist // Design Integrator at Gensler. He has extensive experience in Resilience / High Performance Based Design, Building Performance Modeling & Simulations (Daylight/Glare, Solar, CFD, Thermal, and Energy Modeling), Performance Parametrics, Solar Form Finding and Performance Oriented Design Integration. He has been involved in over 200 LEED and non - LEED projects in the US, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Southeast Asia and has written whitepapers for and presented at SIMBuild, Advanced Building Skins, the Performance Huddle and PLEA among others. He has taught and has been an invited design juror at the University of Houston, PVAMU, University of DC and the Pratt Institute in New York.
