9780419257004: Daylighting: Architecture and Lighting Design

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.

About the Author:

Peter Tregenza is Emeritus Professor in the School of Architecture at the University of Sheffield. As an architect and engineer he has been fascinated by the beauty and complexity of daylight for more than forty years, teaching and studying the subject internationally. He has been Visiting Professor at the National University of Singapore and at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and has worked in schools of architecture in the UK, North and South America, Australia and New Zealand, and China. He has been involved in the research activities of the Commission Internationale de l'Eclairage, especially the CIE/WMO International Daylight Measurement Project and European Union programmes. His publications include many research papers on daylighting and he is the co-author with David Loe of The Design of Lighting (Routledge, 1998).

Michael Wilson is Principal Research Fellow in the School of Architecture and Built Environment at the University of Westminster, UK. He was Director of the Low Energy Architecture Research Unit from 1987 until 2010. He has undertaken more than 25 research, dissemination and demonstration projects in daylighting, acoustics and energy for the European Commission. In particular he coordinated a research project on sun tracking systems and projects producing interactive teaching packages on daylight. He has lectured in the UK, throughout Europe, in South America and South Africa.

Review:

"An interdisciplinary work of high quality with a broad spectrum from urban planning and architecture to lighting design that is well balanced between scientific principles and practical relevance" – Helmut Mueller, Detail
