The use of light pipes for deep plan office buildings : a case study of Ken Yeang's bioclimatic skyscraper proposal for KLCC, Malaysia

Garcia Hansen, Veronica, Edmonds, Ian, & Hyde, Richard (2001) The use of light pipes for deep plan office buildings : a case study of Ken Yeang's bioclimatic skyscraper proposal for KLCC, Malaysia. In ANZAsCA 2001, 2001, Wellington, New Zealand.

Abstract

The case study examines development work on the application of light pipe technology for a new bioclimatic high rise building in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The paper outlines the architectural and environmental issues associated with the design of this building. It presents theoretical modelling and simulation work done to test the feasibility of using light pipes to increase daylight in the building and reduce the need for electric lighting. The benefits of this strategy are discussed.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
