In 1997, a daylight and artificial lighting concept was developed for all the rooms with skylights in the Pergamon Museum. For the first time, a computer simulation of the daylight, including even the falling of shadows on the exhibits, was conducted.
The effect of light was examined in visualizations that even included the detailed shadows cast by the reliefs.
Artificial Light +
The artificial lighting was designed to be entirely above the dust-proof ceiling. The intensity of the direct lighting is influenced by a differentiated density of the glass printing.
Through different degrees of diffusion in the glass roof, light components are directed in a targeted manner onto the Pergamon alter. This was investigated through computer animations which illustrated dynamic diurnal variations.
