|Daylighting offers a general theory and introduction to the use of natural light in architecture.|
The fourth of Derek Phillip's lighting books draws on his experience to illustrate how best to bring natural light into building design. As sustainability becomes a core principal for designers, daylighting comes to the fore as an alternative to artificial, energy consuming, light. Here, Phillips makes a rational argument for considering daylight first, outlining the arguments in favour of a daylight approach, and goes on to show, through a series of
beautifully illustrated case studies, how architects have created buildings in which natural light has been shown to play a major strategic role in the development of the design of a building.
* Learn how to incorporate daylight into a wide range of building design types
* Be informed about the most 'sustainable' of lighting techniques
* International case studies including examples from the UK, Hong Kong and USA inspire the reader and illustrate best practice

|Well designed and safely installed lighting systems make a home safer, more practical, and more enjoyable to live in. This book is a comprehensive guide to using natural and artificial light in the home and landscape. Lighting Design & Installation is divided into two main sections. The design portion of the book teaches the principles used by interior designers to create lighting schemes that are not only practical, but serve to unify the overall look and atmosphere of a home. In addition to traditional wired lighting, this section also examines how fabrics, surfaces, and windows impact the lighting scheme of a home.
Then, an in-depth installation section shows the detailed step-by-step processes for installing all types of lighting fixtures and systems, including traditional incandescent and fluorescent lighting fixtures, track lighting, recessed lighting, low-voltage accent and undercounter lighting, and outdoor low-voltage and solar-powered lighting. The book also presents information on programmable, automated lighting systems.
Lighting Design & Installation is a refreshingly new kind of lighting book, bringing together the very best, most current information on lighting design and do-it-yourself installation.
