Book Description

Exciting new daylighting techniques for architectural design! Just as natural light reveals colors in a richer, truer spectrum, daylighting opens new perspectives for architectural design. Daylighting for Sustainable Design, by noted architectural thinker Mary Guzowski, gives you practical design strategies that create a brighter, greener architecture by weaving together environmental, architectonic, and humanistic factors. Daylighting encompasses sensitive land-use, energy conservation, the use of healthy materials, and waste-reduction; design, technological and mechanical factors; aesthetics and quality of life issues. This stimulating resource helps you adapt daylighting to your own work with... *color illustrations that bring techniques vividly to life *case studies that illustrate how each principle can be implemented *checklist and design approach summaries *guides to daylighting resources, manufacturers, and specialist firms

5.0 out of 5 stars Execellent resource for sustainable design May 18, 2000
Format:Hardcover
This is an excellent book on Daylighting especially in the way the author discusses so many related and synergystic issues. It is an extremely informative, elegant, scholarly and comprehensive book on the subject. Beautifully illustrated with superbly photographed plates. As a daylighting practitioner and architect in the field, I find it to be both useful and interesting. My congratulations to May Guzowski who, incidentally, teaches architecture at the University of Minnesota.
