The success of the project is conditioned by the avoi... Read More about Testing of a method for insulation of masonry and lath walls in existing domestic Scottish construction..

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...
