AbstractThis special issue on ?Daylighting Buildings' presents a collection of original research papers related to the lighting of building interiors with daylight, offering an international overview of many current developments in the field. Some of the papers are directly related to energy use in buildings, the traditional focus of this journal. Other papers review the impact of light on human health, report on work plane illuminances measured in office buildings, or develop a method of how to model complex fenestration systems. By presenting such a range of daylighting-related topics in a single publication, we hope to sensitize the reader to the unique challenges of daylighting, and to assist those who are seeking design solutions that deliver reliable performance to owners and occupants.
