Overview

This book examines how the context of a project can provide a causative force for creating an appropriate architectural lighting design solution. Some of the questions that this book endeavors to answer are as follows:

Why should the lighting world be flat, and at the cost of the amazing variety of local nuances and ideas that can be incorporated into the architectural design process and solutions?
When did darkness become bad?
Should the dialog not be about embracing the differences in culture, design approach, and other conditions that each region of the world provides, while embracing light as a universal medium?
Why are we looking to build an illuminated world at night that looks similar to other places?
How do the new lighting technologies impact our evolving zeitgeist?
Why is providing human-centric, dramatic & evocative experiences through light important for architecture & humanity?
How can we implement contextualized lighting design solutions that respect & enhance life experiences, especially for health and wellness?
