Item description for Lightbook: The Practice of Lighting Design by Ulrike Brandi...

Light is a very important factor in the construction of buildings and their interiors. In an era dominated by technical innovation, ecological demands and aesthetical requirements, architects and investors are recognising that artificial light and daylight can be used to great effect inside and outside with comparative ease. Good lighting is influenced by a number of complex factors: design, experience, technical competence, imagination, and the cooperation of experts and clients. Drawing upon their extensive experience from working with internationally renowned architects on more than 250 projects, the authors have produced a comprehensive handbook on lighting that takes into consideration all these factors. From the very first designs to the completion of the projects, it charts all aspects of lighting projects using copious international examples. Chapters on basic technical details and the necessary instruments are included, and an extensive glossary makes vital information readily accessible.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lightbook: The Practice of Lighting Design?

Bad Packaging  Jan 18, 2007
I purchased the book as a present and was disappointed that the upper right corner of the book was deeply wrinkled and smooshed --- the book was either not wrapped properly or was packaged and sent in bad condition.
