Abstract

A typological approach to daylighting has been an unconscious feature of past daylighting research with the production of daylight performance diagrams and graphs in a manner similar to traditional typological exercises such as Ruskin's categorical analysis of architectural elements. The main objective of this article is to highlight this latent connection between daylight design study and typological analysis and provide a validation method. Taking a cue from recent work by Baker and Steemer, it is proposed that daylighting rules of thumb can be effectively studied by means of a typological approach. As a result, some of the inconsistencies in current daylighting rules, found in architectural literature, can be explained promoting improved application in design.
