JTC 04 (D3/D6): Visual, Health, and Environmental Benefits of Windows in Buildings during Daylight Hours

To review the scientific literature in all relevant fields and to produce a concise document that identifies the values of windows in buildings. Examples of such values could the provision of light for visibility, ventilation, means of egress; aesthetic benefits, access to a view, and light for physiological functioning, including circadian rhythm regulation. If possible, based on this literature, the committee will propose preliminary criteria for daylighting metrics (the metrics being already under development by TC 3-47) to support these functions.
