Adequate daylighting is a key aspect of good building design. Quantity as well as quality of daylight has an impact on the visual comfort of the space. A good design will ensure a balance between both. Before diving into the design strategies, it is important to understanding the fundamentals which is a bit of a technical subject..
This course is the great primer on daylighting. It covers technical terms in the most simple, clear and interesting manner. Examples given in the course correlate with the real world. So the next time you look at daylight, you shall be able to describe it using technical terms with ease.
The entire course is available in BANGLA language. I have got my course translated to Bangla to reach out to those who wish to learn in Bangla language.
