Abstract

This paper expands on a case study of a Ralph Erskine University building located in Cambridge, UK. It explores the relationship between daylight, visual perception and window design. The scope of this paper is to serve as a reminder that window design has an important influence in the quality and use of architectural space. The paper suggests that through an articulated use of window types the designer has the opportunity to extend the control on the function and perception of a space. The conclusion shows examples of this articulation and proposes an integration of the effects of window design at the onset of the design process.
