Summary: The use of natural light in indoor spaces must be done carefully, considering the
quantitative and qualitative aspects of light. This assessment must be
incorporated into the architectural design process in order to obtain more efficient
built spaces. It is worth highlighting the relevance of considering these issues for
educational environments, and light can directly affect students development.
Thus, this research aims to analyze natural lighting strategies in the educational
architecture design process. The methodological procedures were divided into
two parts: Construction of the Checklist and Construction of the script for the
interview. The construction and analysis of the checklist involved the categories
listed based on biliographic references, simulations with the TropLux 7 and Velux
Software, analysis using the solar chart and on-site observations from an
application in an existing environment. The construction of the script for the
interview was based on the categories determined in the checklist and, therefore,
used to analyze the insertion of natural lighting in the design process of school
buildings by the project team of the Municipality of Vitória (PMV). As a main
conclusion, it is highlighted that the studies of natural lighting should provide a
quantitative and qualitative approach. The incorporation of natural lighting in the
architectural design process of a school space must be understood as meeting
the categories: luminous performance in the internal environment, energy
efficiency of the building, integration of the internal and external environment and
the dynamics of the light. The results regarding the construction and analysis of
the checklist showed that the category \\\"Luminous performance of the indoor
environment\\\", should address issues related to the integration of natural lighting
into the indoor environment in a functional way. In the “Energy efficiency of the
building” category, issues related to the integration of natural lighting with artificial
lighting must be addressed, in order to reconcile the lighting of the luminaires. In
the category “Integration of internal and external environment”, issues related to
the integration of the internal environment with the external environment of the
building must be addressed, observing interference from the urban environment
as well as from the external view angle and the volume of the building itself. In
the “Dynamics of Light” category, issues related to the design of light in internal
spaces must be addressed, considering areas of full and empty, light and
shadow. The analysis of the checklist applied to the existing school, compared to
the interview responses, points to the need to incorporate guidelines that can
assist the school building design process regarding the insertion of natural
lighting in the four categories proposed in the research.
