Computer simulation is one of the most useful techniques to predict daylighting performance and present visual image. In architectural and interior design practice, the Lightscape is commonly used often to produce persuasive images rather than physically accurate results. Therefore, this study is to validity the Lightscape as daylighting evaluation tool, in particularly performance and realistically visualization. For the purpose, an evaluation test model (12.0m×7.2m×3.0m) of side lighting window with lightshelf was selected. A 1:6 scale plywood physical model was made. Under clear sky condition, illuminance of 84 interior point were measured. Lightscape was run on a 750 MHz Pentium PC running Windows 2000 under the same sky condition. And a photography image was compared to rendering image. The physical results of interior illuminance were within 8% between the scale model and Lightscape simulation. There were no differences between the photograph image and rendering image by Lightscape in the sight. Lightscape as visualization tool for daylighting performance was validated.
