[Article] Sunlighting as formgiver for architecture
Author William Lam explains the scientific basis of the luminous environment and shows how to shade, redirect, and frame natural light for a variety of purposes and user needs. He explains how to reduce energy use and costs and maximize the effective use of natural light through building design. The sunlighting design process is examined from site through interior stages. Integration of building systems and architectural design with sunlighting equipment is covered; programming, analysis, computer models, and postoccupancy evaluation are stressed. Twenty-five case studies illustrate a range of in-place projects.
