Architectural Press Daylighting: Natural Light in Architecture (Jul 2004)

 Paperback: 240 pages | Publisher: Architectural Press (July 9, 2004)
Language: English | ISBN: 0750663235 | Format: PDF | Size: 7.7 MB
Daylighting offers a general theory and introduction to the use of natural light in architecture.

The fourth of Derek Phillip's lighting books draws on his experience to illustrate how best to bring natural light into building design. As sustainability becomes a core principal for designers, daylighting comes to the fore as an alternative to artificial, energy consuming, light. Here, Phillips makes a rational argument for considering daylight first, outlining the arguments in favour of a daylight approach, and goes on to show, through a series of beautifully illustrated case studies, how architects have created buildings in which natural light has been shown to play a major strategic role in the development of the design of a building.
