Handbook Of Interior Lighting Design
he Handbook of Lighting Design covers the basic principles and practice of architectural lighting. It exists as much as a teaching aid, e.g. for students of architecture, as a reference book for lighting designers. The Handbook does not intend to compete with the existing comprehensive range of specialist literature on lighting engineering, nor to be added to the limited number of beautifully illustrated volumes containing finished projects. The Handbook aims to approach and deal with the subject of architectural lighting in a practical and comprehensible manner. Background information is provided through a chapter dedicated to the history of lighting. The second part of the Handbook deals with the basics of lighting technology and surveys light sources, control gear and luminaires available. The third part deals with concepts, strategies and the processes involved in lighting design. In the fourth part there is a comprehensive collection of design concepts for the most frequent requirements of interior lighting. The glossary, index and bibliography provided to assist users of this Handbook in their daily work facilitate the search for information or further literature.
