LD+A: A Guide to Daylighting Success (2011)

This article provides an overview on a free web-based design resource for the implementation of proven daylighting design strategies in commercial buildings. The Daylighting Pattern Guide ( provides building designers, owners and students a platform to explore the relationships between sky, site, building aperture and space planning. This interactive resource uses a combination of real-world built examples, including of- fices, schools, libraries, laboratories, museums and industrial facilities, and advanced simulation to set the stage for substantial reductions in lighting power density and overall building energy use.
