From the Publisher:
Provides the fundamentals of lighting for design professionals, placing particular emphasis on the relationship between lighting and important emotional and aesthetic factors, such as psychology, physiology, vision, and aesthetics which respond to changing emotions, moods, needs and tastes. Clearly explains how to recognize these factors and achieve a lighting design to meet individual needs. Discusses the scientific aspects of lighting products, analytical techniques of quantitative design, as well as the artistic and aesthetic elements of light. Also includes chapters written in a catalog style that provides methods for selecting lighting fixtures.
From the Inside Flap:
Traditionally, lighting design has meant little more than selecting and evenly distributing light fixtures to meet a specific level of illumination. Architectural Lighting for Commercial Interiors breaks free from that sterile approach, presenting a theory and practice of dynamic lighting design suited for changing human needs. For the first time, the science and art of interior lighting are integrated to serve the full gamut of aesthetic, emotional, and physiological considerations. Architectural Lighting for Commercial Interiors covers the field in four detailed, comprehensive sections outlining everything you need to know about foundations, engineering tools, architectural tools, and applications. Numerous examples show you step-by-step approaches to solving both usual and unusual situations in practical lighting design. Techniques of perspective drawing, drafting, creating a lighting layout, circuiting, and performing a lighting load calculation are shown. Over 250 illustrations complement the text. Foundations start with the evolution of artificial light and are then followed by a thorough discussion of the basics of lighting design—vision, light, and color. A treatment of the scientific aspects of lighting products and analytical techniques of design follows in a section on engineering tools. It gives you a thorough introduction to all types of light sources, shows you how to read the photometrics of a luminaire—a subject not often found in lighting books, though it forms the nucleus of lighting design—and provides you with a step-by-step procedure for the analytical and empirical methods of a quantitative, uniform, or non-uniform lighting design. A unique catalog-style listing opens the treatment of the architectural tools of lighting design, and systematically notes traditional and new incandescent, fluorescent, mercury vapor, metal halide, and high-pressure sodium luminaires, complete with dimensions, finish, notes on advantages and disadvantages, design tips, and areas of use. With this directory unavailable in any other lighting design book, fixture criteria and selection are put at your fingertips. Subsequent chapters chart the numerous lighting patterns and forms possible with the above luminaires, and discuss psychological, physiological, aesthetic, and visual considerations. The concluding section addresses implementation in typical commercial interiors. By integrating science and art, two usually discrete lighting philosophies, Architectural Lighting for Commercial Interiors provides a unique and provocative perspective. Lighting design and architectural firms, electrical engineers, environmental designers, decorators and students will find it an invaluable resource.
