2.1 What Is Daylighting?
Daylighting is using fenestration (windows and doors) as the primary source of illumination
in a space. The electric lighting supplements the daylighting only as needed. The
electric lighting should be turned off when it is not needed and yet able to provide
adequate light when no daylight is available.
Daylight design also includes architectural elements such as light shelves and devices
such as shades to properly control the quantity and the quality of the daylighting.
Which of the following is typically NOT part of good daylighting?
Control of the daylight with architectural features
Maximizing the amount of direct sunlight into a space
Minimizing the use of electric lights when daylight is available
Using daylight as the primary source of illumination
Automatic controls adjust the electric lighting levels. Source: Benya Lighting Design
