I am currently researching on Daylight and Emotion as part of my M.Arch thesis and I need your input! I need a certain mass of input for this research so I hope you can complete my survey here. It should take you less than 5 minutes.
Thank you and have a good day!

A complete list, as always, can be seen in the last three entries of the changelog. There are…Continue
Dear DIVA community,
during these past few years intensively working with & teaching DIVA, I have frequently observed the power of spatially representing daylight metrics to enhance the performance knowledge of designers and building science professionals alike.
Based on those experiences, I've authored a tool that extends the data domain of spatial metrics mapping to include the output of multi-zone thermal building simulations. It's available to you at…Continue

Dear DIVA users,
There is a bug with Rhinoscript in Rhino 5 SR1, released on January 29, 2013 which causes certain elements of DIVA to break. We recommend to avoid upgrading at this time and to keep the original version of Rhino included with your installation CD.
We will update this…Continue
