Lighting design is the art and science of lighting interior and exterior spaces. Successful architectural lighting design enhances the built environment through the integration of light and space and includes evaluating the needs of the occupants and the space, establishing lighting criteria, researching and specifying lighting fixtures, and documenting lighting solutions.
Architectural Lighting Design provides an thorough overview of lighting design and the process for designing lighting. Qualitative and quantitative issues are outlined and design techniques and lighting hardware technologies are reviewed. Guidance on criteria development, concept development and design development remain a cornerstone of the book.
