Designing with Light Book Excerpt:

"In the first chapter of Designing with Light, Meyers summarizes recent developments in the science of light and their cultural impact, and then surveys the uses of light in contemporary visual art, theater, film, and even music. This overview reveals how the work of artists as diverse as videographer Bill Viola, stage director Robert Wilson, and composer John Cage can lend architects insight into the properties of light. Each of the following chapters is devoted to one aspect of light in contemporary architecture, beginning with Color and continuing with Lines, Form, Glass, Windows, Sky Frames, Shadows, and, finally, Reflections. Within these chapters, some two hundred vivid color photographs illustrate the myriad ways in which architects like Zaha Hadid, Herzog & de Meuron, Rem Koolhas, and John Pawson have employed light, internally and externally, in their recent commissions. Enriched with this abundance of images, as well as with numerous insights from Meyers's own architectural practice, Designing with Light will appeal to every student, practitioner, and enthusiast of contemporary architecture."--BOOK JACKET.

Circadian Lighting Design in the LED Era Book Excerpt:

This book explores how lighting systems based on LED sources have the ability to positively influence the human circadian system, with benefits for health and well-being. The opening chapters examine the functioning of the human circadian system, its response to artificial lighting, potential health impacts of different types of light exposure, and current researches in circadian photometry. A first case study analyzes the natural lighting available in an urban interior, concluding that it is unable to activate the human circadian system over the entire year. Important original research is then described in which systems suitable for artificial circadian lighting in residential interiors and offices were developed after testing of new design paradigms based on LED sources. Readers will also find a detailed analysis of the LED products available or under development globally that may contribute to optimal artificial circadian lighting, as well as the environmental sensors, control interfaces, and monitoring systems suitable for integration with new LED lighting systems. Finally, guidelines for circadian lighting design are proposed, with identification of key requirements.

Lighting Design in Shared Public Spaces Book Excerpt:

This book advocates an approach to lighting design that focuses on how people experience illumination. Lighting Design in Shared Public Spaces contextualises light, dark and lighting design within the settings, sensations, ideas and imaginaries that form our understandings of ourselves and the world around us. The chapters in this collection bring a new perspective to lighting design, arguing for an approach that addresses how lighting is experienced, understood and valued by people. Across a range of new case studies from Australia, Germany, Denmark, and the United Kingdom, the authors account for lighting design’s crucial role in shaping our dynamic and messy experiential worlds. With many turning to innovative ethnographic methodologies, they powerfully demonstrate how feelings of comfort, safety, security, vulnerability, care and well-being can configure in and through how people experience and manipulate light and dark. By focusing on how lighting is improvised, arranged, avoided and composed in relation to the people and things it acts upon, the book advances understandings of lighting design by showing how improved experiences of the built environment can result from more sensitive and context-specific illumination. The book is intended for social scientists who are interested in the lit or sensory world, as well as designers, architects, urban planners and others concerned with how the experience of light, dark and lighting might be both better understood and implemented in our shared public spaces.
