Abstract: Building materials have become increasingly diverse and flexible regarding their shapes, colours and texture. These include the use of highly reflective materials for facade (e.g. glass or metal claddings) which becomes a popular concept for high-rise buildings. However, these reflective materials contribute to an increasing number of feedbacks on discomfort associated with reflected glare at the pedestrian's level and the surrounding environment. This study aims to evaluate the impact of reflected glare from the reflective building facade on pedestrians' visual comfort in Kuala Lumpur city area. The relationship between pedestrians and reflected glare issues is determined by applying Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) between male and female. Total of 500 questionnaires is distributed at four different locations. The six-modelled fitting test was tested and within an acceptable range. For both male and female models shows that age significantly affects sensitiveness toward reflected glare. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
