The 5th Wall and High-Performance Ambient Daylighting

For centuries, daylight was the only efficient resource available as a primary lighting source in the built environment. As electric lighting became the standard for interior lighting, vertical daylighting solutions became more prominent. But what do you do when there are no windows? Or the daylight distribution is limited?
