Challenge Title: Maximizing Natural Light in a Dark Room
Challenge Difficulty: Intermediate
Estimated Time to Complete: 48-72 hours
Required Tools/Resources: Sketching materials, computer software for 3D modeling (optional), access to the dark room for measurements and observations.

Objective

Design a solution that maximizes natural light in a dark room, enhancing the overall brightness and ambiance of the space.

Research

Conduct research on existing solutions such as skylights, light tubes, reflective surfaces, and window treatments. Identify the specific needs of individuals who spend time in dark rooms and consider factors like privacy, energy efficiency, and aesthetics.

Materials

Select materials that are durable, easy to maintain, and promote energy efficiency. Consider using sustainable materials that align with eco-friendly practices.

Concept Development

Brainstorm ideas for innovative ways to bring natural light into the room. Explore concepts like light shelves, solar tubes, or smart glass technology. Develop sketches or digital renderings to visualize your concepts.

Deliverables

  1. Concept sketches or digital renderings of your design ideas.
  2. Detailed explanation of how your solution maximizes natural light in the dark room.
  3. Optional: 3D models or prototype plans if time allows.

Evaluation Criteria

Projects will be assessed based on:
1. Innovation: How creative and original is the approach to maximizing natural light?
2. Usability: Does the design effectively enhance natural lighting while considering practicality?
3. Environmental Impact: To what extent does the solution promote sustainability and energy efficiency?

This challenge encourages participants to think critically about problem-solving strategies while incorporating principles of sustainable design for maximizing natural light in a dark room setting within a limited timeframe.
