Overview

Many interior design programs at the technical and associate degree level offer only one course in lighting design, or incorporate the topic of lighting in a design studio. Fundamentals of Lighting addresses the lighting education needs of these specific programs. Focusing on the basics of lighting, this book explains the fundamentals of designing quality lighting environments within the context of the design process. Students will learn the principles of lighting, effects on color, elements of lighting systems, and styles of luminaires. They'll then learn how to apply these concepts within specific interior design contexts, including residential and commercial spaces, with a focus on universal design, human factors, and sustainability.
