Book Summary:

As part of Daylight Europe, the daylighting behaviour of 60 buildings was observed and measured during a three year period. Buildings of many different types, sizes and ages were included - from offices to museums, libraries, churches, houses, airports and factories; from Classical buildings to modern constructions, and from a small single room to an office of over 100,000 square meters. The results of the study of each building are presented, extensively illustrated in colour, with the unusual features and main lessons highlighted. The book also includes details of the monitoring procedures, the results of and comparisons with simulations, the outcome of post-occupancy evaluation, and a summary of the major findings. These show the extraordinary potential of daylighting techniques to improve amenity and energy performance for the benefit of the occupants and building managers. They also demonstrate how often opportunities are missed, and the frequency of problems of overheating or glare. Above all, they demonstrate the beauty, elegance and scope of daylight design.

Book Summary:

Daylight, Design and Place-Making examines the role of daylight in creating and revealing the wonders of heritage and contemporary architecture. Shifting from a purely technical approach to daylighting, this book places importance on the creation of meaningful aesthetics through an understanding of context and culture. Cultural applications of light in architecture differ depending on various historical, technological, and social characteristics. Increasingly, there is a revival of interest in contemporary architecture using daylight as an essential contextual ingredient in the design process. By examining the architecture of daylight in different locales and setting these in their historical contexts, the book argues that appropriate use of daylight will ensure not only visual and thermal comfort in the urban setting and aid in energy efficiency, but also will contribute to the overall identity of new buildings, particularly in urban regeneration projects. This book brings together an analysis of technical aspects of daylight performance and environmental impact, with discussions on the psychology of daylighting and its influence in shaping perceptions of our built environment. It will be an ideal read for academics and researchers interested in architecture and cultural studies.

Book Summary:

To complement the critical and objective view gleaned from the study of some sixty buildings, this design manual has been developed to provide a more synthetic approach to the principles which lie behind successful daylight design. These principles are illustrated with examples drawn from the case study buildings. The emphasis throughout has been on practical methods to improve design, rather than techniques studied for any intrinsic interest. The book provides the necessary tools to assist the designer to provide well daylit interiors, and shows that good daylight design is not a restriction on architectural expression but, on the contrary, acts as an inspiration and foundation for good architecture.

Book Summary:

Buildings are considered to be one of the primary contributors to the socioeconomic development of a country. However, they use a large portion of energy and available natural resources. With the industrialization leading to an increase in urban population, the number of urban buildings which has major effects on energy consumption, has significantly increased. Even with the implementation of energy efficient policies, energy consumption in buildings has regularly grown over the last decades affecting the building's operating cost. For this reason, the construction industry seeks to create a model of sustainable development in buildings which has low environmental impact and high economic and social gains. Currently, most of the world population is gathered in buildings mainly placed in urban areas. Unfortunately, a big part of these buildings are badly constructed without or with unsuitable insulation on the building envelope, and without any heating system. After some decades in use, these buildings suffer from an unacceptable interior living environment due to the unappropriated building envelope solution. This practice causes energy losses through the façades and roofs while producing low interior comfort inside the building, as well as health problems to the occupants. Therefore, nowadays the building industry is concerned with designing new construction solutions with novel components and geometries which are able to face the current energy inefficiency in buildings. The TCP is a novel energy efficient building envelope construction solution which is capable of channeling the sunlight through the opaque part of the walls. Its versatility is based on its capacity for concentrating and scattering daylight into the building's interior while achieving energy savings, i.e. reducing dependence on artificial lighting and also improving the occupant's interior comfort. The complexity of this novel construction solution comes from the physical behavior and geometry of its components, i.e. the Compound Parabolic Concentrator (CPC) and the Optical Fiber (OF). Currently, there is no software in the market that can simulate the daylight transmission of the CPCs and the OFs. In addition, there are no daylight metrics able to properly assess the daylight performance of the TCP. In this sense, this research considered this TCP innovative to give answers to the aforementioned problems. In fact, the building case study shows how is possible to energy retrofit existing façades and roofs while improving the interior living environment and also reducing the energy consumption of the heating and/or cooling systems. This confirm the need to urge the construction industry to design and develop novel energy efficient construction solutions, e.g. Translucent Concrete Panel (TCP). The TCP has the capability of daylight permeability in an anidolic way through the opaque parts of the exterior façades and roofs. Due to the nature of traditional building materials blocking the passage of natural light, there is a constant requirement of artificial lighting into the building, even during daytime. On the other side, some of the most commonly used daylight metrics are not precise enough in order to assess the daylight performance of the prototype. For this reason, the research has designed new daylight tests adapted to the TCP daylight features in order to evaluate its daylight performance. In fact, this is the first required step for future research lines that will be based on computer simulations that to rapidly assess influential parameters of the novel building envelope in several building sub-systems and systems.

Book Summary:

Daylighting offers a general theory and introduction to the use of natural light in architecture. The fourth of Derek Phillip's lighting books draws on his experience to illustrate how best to bring natural light into building design. As sustainability becomes a core principal for designers, daylighting comes to the fore as an alternative to artificial, energy consuming, light. Here, Phillips makes a rational argument for considering daylight first, outlining the arguments in favour of a daylight approach, and goes on to show, through a series of beautifully illustrated case studies, how architects have created buildings in which natural light has been shown to play a major strategic role in the development of the design of a building.

Book Summary:

Almost half of the total energy produced in the developed world is inefficiently used to heat, cool, ventilate and control humidity in buildings, to meet the increasingly high thermal comfort levels demanded by occupants. The utilisation of advanced materials and passive technologies in buildings would substantially reduce the energy demand and improve the environmental impact and carbon footprint of building stock worldwide. Materials for energy efficiency and thermal comfort in buildings critically reviews the advanced building materials applicable for improving the built environment. Part one reviews both fundamental building physics and occupant comfort in buildings, from heat and mass transport, hygrothermal behaviour, and ventilation, on to thermal comfort and health and safety requirements. Part two details the development of advanced materials and sustainable technologies for application in buildings, beginning with a review of lifecycle assessment and environmental profiling of materials. The section moves on to review thermal insulation materials, materials for heat and moisture control, and heat energy storage and passive cooling technologies. Part two concludes with coverage of modern methods of construction, roofing design and technology, and benchmarking of façades for optimised building thermal performance. Finally, Part three reviews the application of advanced materials, design and technologies in a range of existing and new building types, including domestic, commercial and high-performance buildings, and buildings in hot and tropical climates.
