This paper describes the development, implementation, and evaluation of a computational tool for the comprehensive support of the lightning design process. The factors which are determined to be critical for this purpose include a) consitent, coherent and first principles based underlying algorithms, b) the provision of active design support to explore the relationships between the design variables and the performance indices, and c) integration with other building performance simulation tools to encourage the exploration of inter-relationships between the energy aspects of lighting, thermal comfort, HVAC systems, and passive heating and cooling.
