Description - The Art of Architectural Daylighting by Mary Guzokwski
During the past decade there has been a tremendous growth in daylighting analysis methods, allowing designers to meet ever higher standards. But in relying too heavily on these methods, there is a risk of reducing daylighting design to a quantitative exercise, overlooking the qualitative, aesthetic and experiential aspects of design. This book reveals how architects have bridged the poetic and practical potential of daylighting to create exquisitely illuminated spaces.
In the book, twelve buildings are examined, using photographs, drawings and plans. Each case study also includes technical analysis diagrams, specially created using specialist software. Featured architects include Renzo Piano, David Chipperfield and Steven Holl.
The Art of Architectural Daylighting will be invaluable for professionals and students alike.
