Book Description

This authoritative and multi-disciplinary book provides architects, lighting specialists, and anyone else working daylight into design, with all the tools needed to incorporate this most fundamental element of architecture.

It includes:

  • an overview of current practice of daylighting in architecture and urban planning
  • a review of recent research on daylighting and what this means to the practitioner
  • a global vision of architectural lighting which is linked to the climates of the world and which integrates view, sunlight, diffuse skylight and electric lighting
  • up-to-date tools for design in practice
  • delivery of information in a variety of ways for interdisciplinary readers: graphics, mathematics, text, photographs and in-depth illustrations
  • a clear structure: eleven chapters covering different aspects of lighting, a set of worksheets giving step-by-step examples of calculations and design procedures for use in practice, and a collection of algorithms and equations for reference by specialists and software designers.

This book should trigger creative thought. It recognizes that good lighting design needs both knowledge and imagination.
