This is the first volume in a series of upcoming books on daylighting and other sustainable building design concepts written for architects and green building consultants. The book is organized into two parts, "Fundamentals" and "Designing with the Sun". Fundamentals serves as a general introduction to daylighting (chapter 2), its implementation and its daily and seasonal availability (chapter 3). It also explains how light helps us to perceive the world around us and to maintain our circadian rhythm (chapter 4). A practical approach to building massing via rules of thumb is provided in chapter 5. Designing with the Sun introduces methods to determine where the sun is located in the sky throughout the year (chapter 6). Chapter 7 shows how this information can be used to design static shading devices. Heliodon studies using physical models are discussed in chapter 8.
