The Book

Fundamentals of Lighting, 4th Edition, takes a practical and integrated approach to the study of lighting and design. Specifically, the text focuses on how interior lighting designs can address the healthy building movement, human-centric lighting design, and international green guidelines and standards for energy efficiency. Now with case studies and sample lighting plans, learning becomes hands on. This comprehensive textbook is divided into two parts and is organized sequentially to develop a fundamental understanding of how to design quality lighting environments. Part One explores the principles of lighting design. Part Two focuses on lighting design applications and the design process, in both residential and commercial environments.
