The new edition of the popular introduction to architectural lighting design, covering all stages of the lighting design process

Designing with Light: The Art, Science, and Practice of Architectural Lighting Design, Second Edition, provides students and professionals alike with comprehensive understanding of the use of lighting to define and enhance a space. This accessible, highly practical textbook covers topics such as the art and science of color, color rendering and appearance, lighting control systems, building codes and standards, and sustainability and energy conservation. Throughout the text, accomplished lighting designer and instructor Jason Livingston offers expert insights on the use of color, the interaction between light and materials, the relation between light, vision, and psychology, and more.

Fully revised and updated throughout, the second edition features new chapters on design thinking, common lighting techniques, and lighting economics. Expanded sections on aesthetics, controlling LEDs, light, and health, designing with light, and color mixing luminaires are supported by new case studies, examples, and exercises. Featuring hundreds of high-quality color images and illustrations, Designing with Light:



Provides systematic guidance on all aspects of the lighting design process
Thoroughly covers color and light, including color perception, color rendering, and designing with colored light
Explains the theory behind the practice of architectural lighting design
Contains information on cost estimating, life cycle analysis, voluntary energy programs, and professional lighting design credentials

Includes an instructor resource site with PowerPoint presentations, test questions, and suggested assignments for each chapter, and also a student site with flashcards, self-evaluation tests, and helpful calculators. Designing with Light: The Art, Science, and Practice of Architectural Lighting Design, Second Edition is perfect for architecture, interior design, and electrical engineering programs that include courses on lighting design, as well as professionals looking for a thorough and up-to-date desk reference.
