Light makes an architectural space livable, shapes it and guides us within it. The role of light reaches well beyond practical needs and can create environments, emotions and spatial illusions. Today, as our homes and buildings become increasingly interactive and connected to the `Internet of things', the creative possibilities are growing exponentially. This timely publication captures the most imaginative ideas at the dawn of an exciting new era. Some 200 projects are organized into three sections, which consider the central effect produced in each case: lighting that transforms space, lighting that alters the experience of time, and lighting that evokes emotion or psychological change. Projects range from design solutions - practical applications and techniques for improving the ambience and function of our spaces for living and working, to highly experimental or immersive experiences that induce physiological responses or use entirely new sources of light, such as bioluminescence or rarefied gasses. The glow from every page of this dense visual and design resource will provide endless inspiration for the next generation of designers and space-makers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
art and science of light elegantly brought together. . . . One of the most valuable elements of this book is that one can either read it through or randomly open the pages and read about one of the many creative projects that explore different aspects of Light
The color photographs of the installations are numerous and excellent, going well beyond commentary on design to reveal the many manifestations and effects of light as an element of architectural design.
This fascinating book exhibits light as an art form on a global scale... The work of architects, designers, artists, sculptors, engineers, and painters is highlighted for their permanent installations in churches, residences, public works, retail stores, etc.--even the main stairwell of Versailles--as well as for their temporal projects for arts festivals worldwide. In the age of apocalyptic climate change, this book speaks volumes about the value of art as light, both projected and immanent, of which works here boast beyond the ordinary fluorescent and iridescent that illuminate our environments
