Passive daylighting

Passive daylighting is a system of both collecting sunlight using static, non-moving, and non-tracking systems and reflecting the collected daylight deeper inside with elements such as light shelves. Passive daylighting systems are different from active daylighting systems in that active systems track and/or follow the sun, and rely on mechanical mechanisms to do so.
