Book Description :

"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.

Book Description :

For nearly two decades, Office for Visual Interaction (OVI) has been creating inventive lighting designs, illuminating the world’s most prominent architectural works. The New York Times Building, the United States Air Force Memorial, a streetlight for the City of New York, the historic Rookery Building or the Scottish Parliament, are part of a new design canon that has captivated designers and visitors alike. As the name itself states, OVI is inspired by light’s interaction with finishes and materials. Through the activation of surfaces, light and shadow become a natural extension of the architectural language, integrated and woven into the building fabric rather than applied as an additive element. Impeccably designed and illustrated with more than 400 stunning images, sketches, illustrations and graphics, this book is an essential companion to the art and science of lighting design and an unprecedented account of one of the world’s leading architectural lighting design firms.Includes detailed case studies of The Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh plus 19 other projects and also features the exhibition 'Lighting Powers of 10'

Book Description :

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.

Book Description :

Abstract: The partnership between Tennessee Williams and Jo Mielziner has been studied to reexamine the success of Williams's plays. Although there has been extensive scholarship on the works of Tennessee Williams, less attention has been paid to the performance aspect, in particular the design aspect of the productions. However, it is significant that the most successful plays of Williams emerged from his collaboration with Jo Mielziner, whose simultaneous set design and creative lighting effects not only contributed to bring out the drama within the plays, but also became classics in the history of theatre design. The partnership between Williams and Mielziner is more intriguing when viewed within the context of the following factors: Williams's symbolic description of light in his plays, Mielziner's design career as one of the pioneers of modern lighting design in America, the development in the lighting industry since the end of the nineteenth century, and the history and experimenting with dramaturgical light in the theatre that dates back to the end of nineteenth century. Although the partnership between a playwright and a designer is not a new phenomenon in the theatre history, the collaboration between Williams and Mielziner is unique in that with Williams's visual sensibility and Mielziner's fascination with the kinetic scenery and his understanding of literature, they both transcended their designated roles and merged their art on a higher level. In other words, Williams dramatized the image of light with his language, while Mielziner used his design not only to visualize the image of light but also to create spatial and temporal order on the stage that dramatized the literature. A detailed study of their early works, The Glass Menagerie and A Streetcar Named Desire has been carried out in this context to demonstrate the meaning of light in the theatre of Tennessee Williams and Jo Mielziner.
