Lighting design is not a mysterious art form. It is a process. And like any process, it can be learned. Regardless of the space you are going to light . . . and regardless of the light sources available for your use, the process is always the same.—Gary Gordon

Here, at last, is the long-awaited Third Edition of the book that introduced two generations of architects and designers to the principles and practice of interior lighting design. This classic primer continues to be popular because it provides readers with a solid conceptual foundation upon which to build and refine their lighting design skills. Mirroring the teaching philosophy that has been so successful at the prestigious Parsons School of Design, it trains readers in a rational approach to the design process as a whole—an approach that has been proven to work for the lighting of any space, whether it be a gallery, office building, restaurant, or school.

While the emphasis is on universal principles, the author also focuses on essential nuts-and-bolts details. Writing in a clear, eloquent, highly accessible style, veteran lighting designer Gary Gordon defines relevant lighting terms; describes lamps, lighting systems, and techniques; delineates key technical aspects of control and integration and the strategic use of daylight; and explores the complex principles of light perception, brightness, contrast, and color. With the help of numerous real-life examples and hundreds of exquisite photographs and professional line drawings, he brings all of the ideas discussed into sharp focus.

In its incredible capacity for creating beauty and enhancing the quality of life of all within an inhabited space, lighting design is one of the most powerful tools in any architect's or designer's toolkit. Let Interior Lighting for Designers, Third Edition show you how to use that valuable tool to its fullest.

Achieve your design objectives with the book that introduced two generations of architects and designers to the principles of interior lighting.

Working from the premise that lighting design is not a mysterious art form, but a rational process that can be learned, lighting design professional Gary Gordon schools readers in an approach to the design process that can be applied to the lighting of virtually any architectural space. In addition to providing a sound conceptual foundation upon which to build and refine their lighting design skills, he offers detailed nuts-and-bolts guidance to every phase of the design process.

Revised and expanded to cover the many technical advances that have occurred in the field over the past decade, this latest edition of the celebrated classic will serve as an invaluable reference for both students and design professionals.
