From words to ambience: towards an architectural daylighting design based on users' perceptions and behaviours. (2009)
Presentation / Conference
BELAKEHAL, A., BENNADJI, A. and TABET AOUL, K. 2009. From words to ambience: towards an architectural daylighting design based on users' perceptions and behaviours. Presented at the 11th European lighting conference (LuxEuropa 2009), 9-11 September 2009, Istanbul, Turkey.

This paper presents an investigation aiming to demonstrate the possible move from words to ambience in order to achieve an architectural daylighting design. This latter is mainly based on the users’ perceptions and behaviours. It was assumed that the...

Dealing with thoughts based on the ambience notion, the present research work makes for a contribution consisting on the development of an occupant based model for the natural luminous ambience. One of the ambience notion virtues is the supply of the... Read More about Towards an occupant based conceptual model: case of the natural luminous ambience..
