Item description for Lighting the Landscape: Art, Design, Technologies by Roger Narboni...

Lighting design, long regarded as a pragmatic and purely technical aspect of construction planning, has increasingly developed into a discipline of its own over the past years. This publication recognises recent developments by combining the technical sphere with an artistic perspective, centred on the question of the role of natural and artificial light in the perception of a variety of (urban) landscapes. The first section of the book describes techniques for creating nocturnal landscapes, analysing these according to typology (coastal, riverside, lakeside, mountain, forest, marsh, or quarry and industrial sceneries) and concept of illumination. We embark on a process of learning to read (illuminated) landscapes. The second section presents detailed documentation of 21 international case-studies arranged according to type and drawn, for example, from Great Britain, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Japan and Singapore.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lighting the Landscape: Art, Design, Technologies?

The "I published a book" book  Jul 28, 2008
I read this book before the other book I ordered at the same time - The Landscape Lighting Book by Moyer - and even without the invidious comparison the pair presents, I found Narboni's musings worthless, yes worthless. One thought one gets when reading it is that he dictated it in about two hours.

There is simply no substance and only the most shallow of commentary on various aspects of lighting. Moyer's is still the bible and in comparison to Narboni's, forget it, there is no comparison possible.
