This second edition contains a comprehensive and in-depth presentation of lighting fundamentals. The text continues to focus on both natural and artificial lighting and includes chapters on Design Tools and the Design Process. Case studies have also been added, providing helpful exercises for the engineering student. The addition of topics such as energy efficiency, computer programs, and urban design will also appeal to architectural students. The text will continue to be the single, comprehensive resource for illumination education.

Comments: Architectural Lighting This is an excellent book. It provides a comprehensive overview while supplying specific design applications on the topics of natural and electric lighting. It illuminates many technologies and design principles with straight forward language and clear reinforcing graphics. I teach architectural lighting at the School of Architecture at the University of Hawaii. I have reviewed many lighting books for this class and have found the Egan and Olgyay text to be very appropriate for the beginning and advanced student as well as a very useful desk reference for design proessionals.
