Thesis title: Subjective responses to daylight changes in outdoor scenes: Implementing a dynamic view assessment procedure for urban contexts.

In this PhD study, Francisca investigated the mechanisms underlying well-being outcomes as a function of dynamic environmental attributes in window views. She hypothesized that changes within the outdoor visual environment, like those produced by daylight variations across the day, would mediate positive responses toward these views.
