Om boka

Lighting has the power to
illuminate and enhance our experience within the built environment. The light
that enables people to travel around their neighbourhood or their city; the
light which they see themselves and their neighbourhood under. Research into
the effects of urban lighting on behaviour, environmental psychology and social
interaction is developing at a rapid rate. Yet, despite the affect it has on
our daily lives, the practical application of this research is a relatively
untapped resource. There has been a persistent trend to use lighting as a tool
for urban regeneration and many major urban lighting projects around the country
are underway but there is more that can be done on a variety of scales.



This book explores the needs and
experiences of people at night and how these can be addressed
by public lighting. It will give readers the confidence to develop more
sophisticated lighting plans and add value to their projects. Case studies
provide in-depth analysis of real-life projects and will help the reader to
understand lighting designers' own experiences, including post-installation
observations. Written in an accessible style by an array of experts, this is an
essential book for practitioners, academics and students alike, that will
enable you to put the research in to practice and develop better lighting for
better places.
