Fundamentals of Lighting, 2nd Edition builds upon the first edition's need to have a textbook on quality lighting from a design perspective and has pedagogical strategies that have particular appeal to the millennial generation. The 2nd Edition also emphasizes the sustainability characteristics of daylighting and electrical lighting. To conceptualize and design a quality lighting environment requires an understanding of how daylight, luminaires, electrical sources, and control systems will affect people and the built environment.
Fundamentals of Lighting, 2nd Edition emphasizes the sustainability characteristics of daylighting and electrical lighting and has an almost entirely new art program with over 300 photographs of global interiors and new lighting systems.
Fundamentals of Lighting, 2nd Edition, is written for college students who are studying lighting in their quests to become interior designers. Taking an integrative approach, the text not only includes lighting system basics, but also demonstrates how lighting relates to the design process, human factors, sustainability, global issues, regulations, business practices, and the LEED building certification program.
