Abstract

Top-lit atria are more popular than side-lit atria because they are believed to have a better distribution and higher daylighting level. However, in low latitude humid tropics they may cause over lighting and thus overheating. Using computer simulation, this study attempts to compare the distribution and level ofdaylighting in top-lit atria with those in the side-lit atria
