The Daylighting Handbook II

The Daylighting Handbook is the second volume in a series of textbooks on daylighting and other sustainable building design concepts. The first volume is organized into two parts, "Fundamentals" and "Designing with the Sun". The second volume consists of eight chapters are divided into two parts, "Daylight Simulations" and "Dynamic Facades."

Chapters 9 to 12 discuss how to predict the overall amount of daylight in and around buildings at any given site using manual methods and computer simulations. Chapters 13 to 16 present an integrated design analysis framework to evaluate facades with dynamic shading and lighting systems that negotiate between occupant comfort and energy efficiency.

 

The Daylighting Handbook is produced by Building Technology (BT) Press, an independent publishing house based in Cambridge, MA, that aims to provide scientifically sound, visually appealing, peer-reviewed and affordable textbooks on the built environment to architects, urban planners, sustainability consultants and the general public. Before publication, each book chapter has undergone a rigorous peer review by at least three recognized experts in the field, usually a mix of a practitioner, an academic and a researcher. All book figures follow a graphics standard designed and verified by Yoshiki Waterhouse from Waterhouse Cifuentes Design. All text has been edited and finalized by senior architecture editor Ria Stein. The books are being printed in New England and delivered worldwide via Amazon fullfillment or PayPal.
