When windows are admitting light then they are also admitting heat. 6 for quadruple glazing with low emissivity coating. 7 Single and double glazing (from Pilkington, 1980). heat in a space during cold weather. There are various methods of reducing the heat loss through windows. The problem is that they are expensive and as they reduce the light transmission the optimum area increases. Several layers Several layers of glass with gas between the layers reduces the heat transmission. Heat is transmitted across the cavity by long-wave (blackbody) radiation at the glass temperature.

Warm clothes should be used rather than raising the temperature setting of a thermostat. It should be possible to design flexible good insulating clothes for use in the next millennium. In temperate climates buildings should be comfortably cool during the summer. People can become accustomed to a temperature of 30°C as long as it does not get this hot too often. 4 LIGHT Energy use depends on light. Recent work commissioned by the EC illustrates the relationship between use of energy and areas of glass in the envelope of a building.

Work carried out in the UK (Building Research Establishment, 1966) investigated people’s response to light levels, overheating, and traffic noise. Buildings whose design has evolved give a clue as to the compromises which people have made. When we consider the complex series of interactions which are summarized by the word ‘architecture’, it is helpful to look back a thousand or so years. A cob cottage (Fig. 2) provides a light level on an overcast day of the order of 100 lux. The design must have evolved at the beginning of the last millennium.
