Lighting is a key feature of almost all interiors and exteriors, but it is often treated in a superficial manner in most design books. This book features more than 50 recent international projects where the lighting is the defining design feature. For large schemes, a professional lighting designer is usually employed, but for smaller projects it will often fall to the architect or designer to specify the lighting. In either case, it is crucial that the architect or designer understands what lighting is available, how it can be used and controlled and how it can be fitted. The projects featured in this book include road lighting, square & park lighting, architectural facade lighting, bridge lighting and furniture lighting schemes, each with detailed plans, diagrams, sketches to demonstrate the lighting techniques involved. Each project is also accompanied by an explanatory text that looked at the original brief, the design concept, and the detailed specification of light fittings."
