Summary

Fundamentals of Lighting, 2nd Edition builds upon the first edition's need to have a textbook on quality lighting from a design perspective and has pedagogical strategies that have particular appeal to the millennial generation. The 2nd Edition also emphasizes the sustainability characteristics of daylighting and electrical lighting. To conceptualize and design a quality lighting environment requires an understanding of how daylight, luminaires, electrical sources and control systems will affect people and the built environment. To help students to understand these effects Fundamentals of Lighting, 2nd Edition has almost an entirely new art program with over 300 photographs of global interiors and new lighting systems. Photographs and text include innovative approaches to lighting from nontraditional sources such as the visual arts, nanotechnologies and textiles. #xB7;
