Abstract

Asian cities, especially tropical cities of South and Southeast Asia, are in need of smart technology.
One smart technology, the light pipe strategy, would alleviate the dependence on artificial lights during daylight hours. Light pipe provides possible solution by means of piping daylight into the depths of buildings.  This research focuses on the potential of light pipes in Dhaka city. For the solution, horizontal light pipes have been retrofitted to the selected buildings and assessed by testing a computer model using ‘Ecotect and Radiance’software. Comparative analysis was conducted between the existing and the retrofitted conditions to show the feasibility of the suggested method.
