"With her book The Architecture of Light, Mary Ann Steane reminds us of an often undervalued resource of sustainable architecture: daylight. The book depicts natural light above all as a design tool in the hands of architects and less as a scalable quantity." ― Detail Magazine
About the Author
Mary Ann Steane is an architect and a lecturer at the University of Cambridge. Her research on the use of natural light marries an understanding of lighting design principles with a broader cultural perspective. She examines how architects handle the relationship between light, material and the occupation of space, looking closely at the way in which these factors affect perception of and attunement to the visual environment.

I was writing about natural lighting in art galleries and museums and this book gave me great perspective, as well as a good idea of how to go about analysing a buildings lighting without getting into the scientific methods.
