a study of daylight availability in Canadian residential buildings : final report /

"This study attempts to find performance indicators to evaluate the capacity of housing units to gather daylight in different urban settings. A combination of computer simulation and physical testing was used to determine natural light levels in a wide range of building and urban designs. The results are synthesized into graphical information that researchers, designers and planners can use to assess the amount of daylight in high and low-rise residential buildings"--Executive Summary.
