Enhanced with more than one hundred new illustrations, Interior Lighting for Designers, 4th Edition (published by Wiley) takes readers step-by-step through the lighting design process as it covers lighting terminology, perception, general design strategies, and much more.
The revised edition of the highly successful, seminal book that has introduced generations of architects and designers to the principles of lighting, this edition also covers new equipment as well as revised specifications for existing equipment. Color photos of various design applications beautifully illustrate project concepts.

Working from the premise that lighting design is a rational process, author Gary Gordon provides a solid conceptual foundation based on the conviction that the lighting condition of interiors has enormous emotional impact on people. With an emphasis on designing light, tools and techniques for every phase of his process are presented as a means to achieve the optimal design.
