Daylight Design- Beyond the Curtain Wall
Full price: $134.00
Area limits on external façade glazing and skylights in Section J of the BCA are making it increasingly difficult for architects to bring natural light into their buildings. With these limitations on glazed area, designers need to better understand daylighting principles in order to tap into the multiple benefits of natural light.
