Lighting is an essential component of any designed space, yet it is one of the most difficult to get right. Lighting Design Basics provides a fundamental grounding in architectural lighting concepts, processes, and techniques that every student should master. Concise, visual coverage of current lighting technology includes design scenarios for more than 25 spaces; each case includes an in–depth rationale, floor plans, diagrams, and construction details to illustrate the real–world application of lighting design.

  • Master the basic concepts of daylighting, lamps, luminaires, controls, and other topics related to light quality and quantity
  • Adopt a logical approach to lighting design that includes proper documentation in alignment with up–to–date best practices
  • Work through case studies that show how lighting design concepts are applied to residential, retail, hospitality, workspace, healthcare, and other common projects
  • Learn the basic skills required to become competent in the field, and prepare for the NCIDQ and NCARB exams

Lighting can make or break any space, and design choices impact the cost and comfort of the building over the long term. Lighting Design Basics provides a critical foundation and prescriptive techniques to help future architects and interior designers make smart design choices.
