Daylighting is an effective sustainable development strategy in improving the qualities for visual comfort, productivities and health. The increasing use of daylighting system can offer better savings in electricity usage, up to 20–30% of total building energy consumption. This paper reviews the current daylighting strategies incorporated to a building. The development of a highly efficient reflective and refractive materials have made the redirection of daylighting into areas of buildings far…
