This richly illustrated, up-to-date guide offers practical coverage of all aspects of lighting design. Written by an award-winning, internationally known lighting designer, it covers lighting practices, materials, and their design applications and offers guidelines for preparing lighting drawings, control and transfer charts, symbol lists, and other technical specifications. This edition provides a new focus on the use of LEDs, as well as new and expanded coverage of renderings, Mesopic Vision, and the latest controls approaches and systems.
This incredibly detailed reference book by an experienced lighting designer can serve a dual purpose: It can help landscape architects who are working with lighting professionals to research some of the issues they need to discuss, and it can serve as a guide to landscape architects on smaller projects who will be doing lighting design themselves. This third edition has been updated to include guidance on how LED technology requires changes to the configuration of light fixtures. Sections on how to light residential and public spaces as well as specifics on how to light different plants, sculptures, walkways, and stairs make this a reference book designers should keep handy.
