Mehr als jedes andere Baumaterial bestimmt das Tageslicht Raumwirkungen, erzeugt Stimmungen, inszeniert Architektur. Eine sinnvolle Tages- und eine darauf abgestimmte Kunstlichtplanung trägt, gerade in Bürogebäuden, wesentlich zur Energieeinsparung bei: Je besser das Tageslicht genutzt wird, desto weniger Energie muss für Kunstlicht eingesetzt werden. Aus diesem Grund hat sich das Leitbild der Architektur in den letzten Jahren geändert: Aus abgeschlossenen, voll klimatisierten Gebäuden wurden zunehmend Bauwerke, die auf die klimatischen Gegebenheiten der Umgebung baulich reagieren und so, ohne Einbußen beim Komfort, nur noch wenig Energie benötigen. Im Band Basics Lichtplanung sind die wichtigsten Grundlagen zur Tages- und Kunstlichtplanung zusammengestellt. Themen sind u.a.: Größen und Einheiten Planungsregeln der Gebäudekonzeption (Grundrissgestaltung, Gebäudeorientierung und Fassadengliederung) Konzepte der Lichtplanung aktuelle Tages- und Kunstlichtsysteme Sonnenschutz Tageslichtlenkung

Das Handbuch der Lichtplanung bietet einen umfassenden Überblick über Grundlagen und Praxis der Architekturbeleuchtung. Es dient sowohl als Lehrbuch, z.B. für Studenten der Architektur, wie auch als Nachschlagewerk für den Praktiker. Allerdings will es weder mit der umfangreichen lichttechnischen Fachliteratur konkurrieren, noch die begrenzte Anzahl von Bildbänden zu ausgeführten Planungsbeispielen erweitern. Ziel ist es vielmehr, das Thema Architekturbeleuchtung möglichst praxisnah und verständlich zu erschließen. Hintergrundinformationen liefert das einleitende Kapitel zur Geschichte der Beleuchtung. Der zweite Teil des Handbuchs beschäftigt sich mit lichttechnischen Grundlagen und einer Darstellung der verfügbaren Lichtquellen, Betriebsgeräte und Leuchten. Der dritte Teil umfaßt eine Auseinandersetzung mit Konzepten, Strategien und Abläufen der lichtplanerischen Praxis. Im vierten Teil findet sich eine umfangreiche Sammlung exemplarischer Lösungen für die häufigsten Aufgabenstellungen der Innenraumbeleuchtung. Glossar, Register und Literaturverzeichnis sollen die Arbeit mit dem Handbuch unterstützen und die Suche nach weiterführender Literatur erleichtern.

Lighting by Design is a practical guide structured around a new theoretical approach to the design of lighting for architectural spaces. Christopher Cuttle outlines his unique three-level approach to lighting design in this indispensable text for students and professionals. Through Observation, Visualisation and Realization, the book explains how to envision, develop and produce your own lighting ideas. Architects, interior designers and specialist lighting designers will benefit from a holistic approach to the lighting process, combining technical information with a distinctive design theory. Cuttle begins with the development of observational skills, leading to the ability to visualise architectural spaces in light. The final stage of realising the lighting concept involves application of calculational procedures to develop a technical lighting specification. The text includes practical advice on meeting design specifications and contractual obligations. There is also a glossary of technical terms and symbols, and a guide to the calculations that the author uses for quantifying lighting concepts.
