Designing With Light: The Art, Science, and Practice of Architectural Lighting Design is a comprehensive introduction to the intelligent use of lighting to define and enhance a space. The book explores all aspects of the process, including aesthetics, technology, and practicalities, in a clear, concise manner designed to provide the reader with a full working knowledge of lighting design. Color illustrations throughout demonstrate the real-world effects of the concepts presented, and the companion website offers video animations and exercises to better illuminate the art and science of lighting. The book addresses the considerations that should be a part of any designer's process, and provides thorough guidance on meeting the various demands with smarter design.
Lighting is an essential element of interior design, and despite its ubiquity, is difficult to truly master. A designer with a fundamental and conceptual understanding of light is empowered to create simple, typical spaces, or work intelligently with lighting consultants on more complex projects. Designing With Light contains special discussions on color, light, and health, as well as the latest information on energy efficient lighting, control systems, and other technologies. Topics include:
The book also contains an entire chapter on building and energy codes, as well as practical guidance on photometrics and calculations. Lighting can make or break an otherwise well-designed space, so designers need the background to be able to think intelligently about illumination factors during all stages of the process. With comprehensive coverage and thorough explanation, Designing With Light is a complete resource for students and professionals alike.

Modern Clinic Design: Strategies for an Era of Change isa comprehensive guide to optimizing patient experience through thedesign of the built environment. Written by a team of veteranhealthcare interior designers, architects, and engineers, this bookaddresses the impacts of evolving legislation, changingtechnologies, and emerging nontraditional clinic models on clinicdesign, and illustrates effective design strategies for any type ofclinic. Readers will find innovative ideas about lean design,design for flexibility, and the use of mock-ups to prototype spaceplans within a clinic setting, and diagrammed examples includingwaiting rooms, registration desks, and exam rooms that demonstratehow these ideas are applied to real-world projects.
Spurred on by recent healthcare legislation and newtechnological developments, clinics can now offer a greater varietyof services in a greater variety of locations. Designers not onlyneed to know the different requirements for each of these spaces,but also understand how certain design strategies affect thepatient's experience in the space. This book explores all aspectsof clinic design, and describes how aesthetics and functionalitycan merge to provide a positive experience for patients, staff, andhealthcare providers.Understand how recent industry developments impact facilitydesignLearn how design strategies can help create a positive patientexperienceExamine emerging clinic models that are becoming increasinglyprevalentAnalyze the impact of technology on clinic design
