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.
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.
