The architect should always be in control, working to satisfy the aims of the daylighting design together with the need to conserve energy. The Daylight 41 daytime use and management of artificial lighting will also have a large part to play in any integrated design in those buildings were daylight alone is insufficient. Since daylight varies in intensity and direction from morning to night and season to season no finite level can be established. For this reason, the ratio of the light level inside at different points is related to the level of light outside, and this is known as the Daylight Factor (DF).

The human body has a capacity for adaptation, particularly in the field of vision, with a need to exercise this response. Perception itself depends 26 Lighting Modern Buildings upon a degree of change; the appearance of our surroundings alters with time, and if we have confidence in their continuing reality, it is because changes in their lit appearance allow us to continue an exploration of their character. Change and variety are at the heart of daylighting, as is the medium through which it is delivered, the window.

Light distribution is critical for a satisfactory interior environment, and it is therefore crucial to consider the aesthetic requirements of modelling the interior. It is insufficient to achieve enough light (in terms of Daylight Factor) if the resulting visual experience does not give the impression of a well daylit room. Model studies will generally repay the time spent making them since they can be helpful in assessing not only the levels of light but the visual impact of different proportions of window, together with their light distribution.
