Natural light and air in the built environment are vitally important to the well-being of the occupants and their productivity, and to the profitability of businesses and building owners. But not all daylighting designs are created equal. The designer must understand not only the importance of natural light in the workplace, schools, and retail environments, but also how to bring it about for optimal function, performance, and durability. This course discusses the factors to consider.
