Item description for Ultimate Lighting Design (Ultimate) by Herve Descottes...

The lighting designer is at once an artist and an engineer. He uses the best technology available to reveal scope, space, and form---both in landscapes and in urban environments---and aims to do so in a way that achieves a functional, creative, and environmental result. This relatively recent profession is the focus of the latest title in teNeues' Ultimate series. Lighting Design presents an illustrated overview of Herv Descottes' many projects. Founder of the renowned New York design firm L'Observatoire International, Descottes collaborated with architects such as Frank Gehry (Walt Disney Concert Hall, LA), Mario Botta, Jean Nouvel and OMA/Rem Koolhaas (three museums in Seoul, South Korea), and Richard Meier (Restaurant 66, New York City).

Reviews - What do customers think about Ultimate Lighting Design (Ultimate)?

Great Idea Book of What Lighting Can Do to a Basic Design  Mar 7, 2006
This large, profusely illustrated, multi lingual book illustrated the lighting projects of Herve Descottes and his company L'Observatoire International. These projects are largely for commercial building such as concert halls, churches, theaters, art galleries and a few restaurants/lounges. But then to round it off, there are projects like the lighting of Columbus Circle in New York City and perhaps the most strange, the Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island.

This book makes it clear that advanced and sophisticated lighting techniques are as an important a part in the basic design of a building as is the design of the structure itself. This is basically an idea book. Looking over these successful designs to see what was created using something as ephemeral as light. Something that we see, but which really isn't there.
