"For those studing to be a lighting designer or interior designer, Designing with Light offers a comprehensive introduction to the aesthetics, technology, and practice of lighting design. Beginning with a look at the lighting design profession, Livingston describes the physics of light, human perception of light (including psychology), and goes on to describe lamps and fixtures in use today, as well as those on the horizon. Communication of design ideas and the design process is emphasized, urging the reader to think about how the design will make a space should look and feel. The practicalities of documenting the design, and consideration of architectural details, lighting controls, photometrics and calculations are explained in a clear manner, with ancillary exercises and pedagogy to help give the reader a working knowledge.

Taking an imaginative and creative look at the potential of creating and using light, Lighting by Design opens a new perspective on outdoor and indoor design. Lighting is an essential part of interior design. It is easy to visualise fabrics from swatches and large samples, but lighting is more complex; we cannot touch or feel it, yet it is all around us and responsible for what we see. One needs to understand light in three dimensions - it's not only important what is lit, but to know where shadows are created. Skilful lighting is the balance between light and shade. Starting with a discussion on the nature of light and the interplay of light and shadow on buildings inside and out, the author inspires with the imaginative creation of light within the home for varying effects from calm softness to theatrical drama. A major part of the book is devoted to outdoor lighting, from entrances and exits, roof terraces and decks to special features such as topiary, swimming pools, water features and statues blending, garden spaces and interior dimension into a unified whole. Specially commissioned photography shows before and after effects and unusual usage of daylight and artificial light to create new moods. Inspirational photographs feature the interiors of respected designers such as Jonathan Reed, Mary Fox Linton, Nina Campbell and Tricia Guild. Further features include use of pattern, focus, using coloured light and provide advice on the best choice of colours to maximise reflection into a space. Packed with elegant ideas, superb photographs and imaginative suggestions for creating a dramatic and changing environment, this book adds a whole new dimension to interior design.

Drawing on the latest research in the fields of environmental psychology and education, the authors show you how architecture and interior spaces can positively influence individuals with neurodiversities by modifying factors such as color, lighting, space organization, textures, acoustics, and ventilation. Now you can design homes, therapeutic environments, work environments, and outdoor spaces to encourage growth and learning for the projected 500,000 children with ASD (in the United States alone) who are expected to reach adulthood by 2024. Topics discussed include: -Environmental design theories -Symptoms of ASD -Sensory processing deficits -Design needs of individuals on the spectrum at all ages -Design methods and solutions for spaces, including residential, learning, work, and therapeutic environments encompassing a wide range of budgets -Designing for self-actualization, well-being, and a high quality of life for the duration of an individual's life -Avenues for healthy living and aging in place -Biophilic design -Environmental impact on well-being -Strategies to promote active living as an integral part of the welfare focus.

Building Physics: Lighting, Seeing in the Artificial Environment deals with basic principles of lighting as used in architecture, in building maintenance, and in an artificial environment. The book starts with the process of how humans see; the interaction of the eye and mind; and the effects of fatigue, visual disorders, and age. The phenomena of light are then discussed — how light behaves and how it is measured. Light and light waves beyond the visible spectrum are explained scientifically as being part of the electromagnetic spectrum within the 400 to 760 nm ranges. The different light sources are identified as daylight and artificial lights, with many types of lamps under the latter. As regards artificial lighting, a lighting fitting has two functions: redistributes luminescence properly and provides a suitable receptacle for the lamp. The requirements when using artificial or natural light in an exterior or interior setting are enumerated. The book also explains the specifications of the amount of light and how this amount is calculated. Interior lighting, both from artificial and natural sources, is comprehensively discussed, including issues such as discomfort glare, reflected glare, design and aesthetics, lighting requirements in different kinds of buildings, and flammability properties. The text also tackles exterior lighting including decorative floodlights, lighting for tunnels and underpasses, and special problem areas. Architects, engineers, electricians, interior designers, lighting technicians, environmentalists, and readers with interest in home decor will find this book useful.
Seeing in the Artificial Environment
Author: W. R. Stevens
Light makes an architectural space livable, shapes it and guides us within it. The role of light reaches well beyond practical needs and can create environments, emotions and spatial illusions. Today, as our homes and buildings become increasingly interactive and connected to the 'Internet of things', the creative possibilities are growing exponentially. This timely publication captures the most imaginative ideas at the dawn of an exciting new era. Some 200 projects are organized into three sections, which consider the central effect produced in each case: lighting that transforms space, lighting that alters the experience of time, and lighting that evokes emotion or psychological change. Projects range from design solutions - practical applications and techniques for improving the ambience and function of our spaces for living and working, to highly experimental or immersive experiences that induce physiological responses or use entirely new sources of light, such as bioluminescence or rarefied gasses. The glow from every page of this dense visual and design resource will provide endless inspiration for the next generation of designers and space-makers.
