Lighting by Design provides guidance on where to find inspiration for lighting ideas, how to plan the technical detail and how to execute the plan to create safe, effective and beautiful schemes.

Christopher Cuttle's unique three level approach uses Observation, Visualisation and Realisation as the means to achieve these aims. Cuttle is a well known figure in the UK, US and Australia and New Zealand, with a wealth of experience of both teaching and practice.

This new edition is fully updated and produced in full colour with many new diagrams and photographs. It will be immensely useful to professional and student architects, interior designers and specialist lighting designers.

"This is an excellent book which is worthy of a second edition. It is intended to be thought-provoking and it certainly achieves that aim. One of its strengths is that it not only challenges our thinking, but it also uses mathematics to tie the ideas down."
