||Design of "Intelligent buildings" with improved use of daylight
||"Intelligent Building" durch verbesserte Tageslichtnutzung [in German]|
||Aug. 1996, Vol.48, No.7-8, p.588-596. Illus. 22 ref.
||An innovative method of better using the daylight in buildings is described. The new natural lighting system takes into account the different needs of homes and offices. In offices attention is paid to providing visual comfort at work on visual display terminals. Special, patented mirrors are used to control solar radiation in summer and provide better use of it in winter. With these mirrors the daylight is directed to locations distant from the window. Solar radiation can be guided towards building structures such as concrete floor slabs which are capable of storing thermal energy.
