The second stage will connect designers with more than 40 researchers and leaders who study daylight and its applications. Since 2005, the Daylight Symposium has investigated the potential of natural light as a building material and as a means of creating healthy and resilient buildings. Kevin Van Den Wymelenberg, an American architectural researcher and lecturer, will moderate the symposium.
