Lighting in Schools.
Department of Education and Science, London (England).
The application of good lighting principles to school design is discussed. Part 1 of the study is concerned with the general principles of light and vision as they affect lighting in schools. Parts 2 and 3 deal with the application of these principles to daylighting and artificial lighting. Part 4 discusses the circumstances in which the daylighting and the artificial installation can be designed to be used together. Part 5 and Appendices 1 and 2 consider in greater detail some of the problems which arise in lighting specific spaces in the school, in lighting for the partially-sighted and in remodeling old schools. Many drawings, diagrams, and photographs supplement the text. (KK)
