Abstract: The paper explores alternative methods of perceiving daylight techniques in sustainable architecture through the use of various case studies. Illuminance levels often peak at areas close to the fenestration but drop drastically at spaces further away. The aim is to correct illuminance levels through a space providing for a greater spread of controlled day lighting. A study on the behaviour of light is done in two parts; one that it behaves as a wave before it comes into contact with a human eye, and the second that it behaves as combination of waves and energy when it reaches the human eye. In this manner, illuminance is defined by the former and colour, by the latter. Passive colour generation techniques are also explored in this paper. The function of colour is thoroughly examined. The query of how colours generate psychological and biological reactions from people is evaluated. As a result, passive colour generation techniques are explored to work with these causes. Eventually, an idea of laminating diffraction grating film on LCP is explored as a material possibility that produces a “healing architecture with light and colour.” Since, colour generation only occurs on surfaces with low illuminance levels, this works perfectly in this scenario, as colour generation will be focused on regions closer to the elevation fenestration and daylight transferred equally to the deeper regions of the space. A fresh expression of daylight in sustainable architecture is found and a design tool is developed for use on an architectural scale after analyzing all the current technologies that are present in the market today.
