Abstract [en]

The importance of daylight for humans has been known for a rather long time. Applying this knowledge in the science of urban planning is not very common, at least not in Stockholm, Sweden. Living in a country far from the equator with great differences between daylight and darkness during the year, daylight gets even more important for our wellbeing. This study aims to highlight the subject of daylight planning and contribute to the discussion about how to include daylight in the process of urban planning. By critically observing a new built district in Stockholm and applying guidelines of how to use daylight planning, this paper shows how important it is to include daylight planning early in the process. There are numerous gains from the use of daylight planning, economical, social and ecological. Until today the effects of daylight and planning has only been of interest to architects. This paper points out the importance of introducing the subject to urban planners as well, because they are the ones who hold the power to coordinate at a higher level.
