Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

To-the-point, fundamental knowledge of lighting design

Lighting is a basic, yet difficult-to-master, element of interior design, and Lighting Design Basics offers essential knowledge of this complex subject in a concise, highly visual format. Two leading practicing designers, with many decades of experience, present straightforward coverage of lighting design concepts, techniques, and realistic goals to guide new designers and students through the process of creating simple, typical lighting designs and effectively collaborating with professional designers on more complex projects.

Design scenarios for more than twenty different spaces illustrate real-world case studies for illuminating residential and commercial spaces, from kitchens to doctors’ offices. Each scenario includes an in-depth rationale for the proposed solution, insightful lighting distribution diagrams, floor plans, and details for lighting installation and construction. Featured exercises offer focused development of lighting design skills in preparation for working on actual lighting design projects, as well as the NCIDQ and NCARB exams.

Packed with informative illustrations, Lighting Design Basics is an invaluable resource for students, as well as interior designers and architects studying for professional licensing exams.
