Overview

Lighting is a basic, yet difficult-to-master, element of interior design, and Lighting Design Basics provides the information you need in a concise, highly visual format. Two leading designers, both with decades of experience, offer straightforward coverage of concepts and techniques, and present realistic goals you can use as guides to creating simple, typical lighting designs and when collaborating with professional designers on more complex projects.

Design scenarios for more than twenty different spaces illustrate real-world case studies for illuminating residential and commercial spaces, from kitchens to doctors' offices. Each scenario includes an in-depth rationale for the proposed solution, insightful lighting distribution diagrams, floor plans, and details for lighting installation and construction. In addition, exercises allow you to develop lighting design skills in preparation for working on actual projects, as well as the NCIDQ and NCARB exams.

Packed with informative illustrations, Lighting Design Basics is an invaluable resource for students, as well as interior designers and architects studying for professional licensing exams.

    Not worth it

    While the book does contain some technical information, such as calculations for determining the illumination (amount of light) X ft away from a specific source, the book contains only the most general text relating to lighting situations, such as classrooms, conference rooms, hallways, etc. At $43 and under 200 pages the asking price doesn't seem to represent a high value to me. Try the public library first to see what information is out there, then buy a copy of something you see there or check the bibliography of a book for hints to titles and sources.
