Brief Bio

Professor Barbara Szybinska Matusiak has seven years architectural practice. During this period she won several closed architectural competitions in Norway. She joined the Faculty of Architecture at NTNU in 1994 as a research fellow. Her doctoral project was devoted to daylighting in linear atrium buildings at high latitudes (finished 1998). Since then she has been involved in many Norwegian and international scientific projects dealing with daylighting and artificial lighting in architecture, e.g. project manager of two large RCN projects: “DayLighting” and “HOME” and the partner/member of SYN-TES, the Nordic network. She is also strongly involved in the activities of the international organizations: CIE, AIC and IEA and she has been the Norwegian representative in the CEN technical committee working with the proposal of a new European standard for daylighting in buildings. She designed the artificial sky and artificial sun for the Daylight laboratory (constructed 2000-2002) and the newest version of the full-scale room laboratory ROMLAB (finished 2006). Her teaching activities (master classes) are devoted to daylight, artificial light and colour in architecture. She is the supervisor for four PhD-candidates and one post.doc. at the Faculty of architecture and design. She has been an opponent for many PhD-projects and the reviewer for a number of international scientific journals and conferences. She established Light & Colour Group at the Faculty of Architecture at NTNU in 2011 and had led the group since then. Since the group has produced research at a high scientific level, is very active in research dissemination and has developed a large national and international network, it got the center status in 2017: Light & Colour Centre, NTNU. She is the member of the Norwegian Academy of Technological Sciences (NTVA) and the member of the international Daylight Academy (DLA)
