Abstract:

"The emotional and physiological impact of lighting has become one of the leading issues in today's design professions. In Light Revealing Architecture, nationally recognized authority Marietta Millet goes beyond fixtures and hardware, lumens and light bulbs to explore the timeless principles of lighting, as evidenced in architecture, by using examples ranging from ancient to contemporary buildings." "Using over 400 illustrations - plans, sections, diagrams, and photos - Millet shows how specific lighting effects are achieved from an architectural approach. She does this while examining the meaning of light in relation to those inhabiting the space." "In this groundbreaking book, Millet bridges gaps that currently exist between how architecture is taught in schools and what methods are practiced in the profession. She deftly examines the relationships among qualitative and quantitative aspects of lighting, the complementary use of daylighting and electric lighting, and poetic and practical approaches to lighting." "In each of four fascinating chapters, Millet explores a separate aspect of light: in "Light Revealing Experience" she looks at ways in which light connects us to climate, time, and specific places and activities (such as reading); in "Light Revealing Form" Millet discusses the formal, material, and structural aspects of buildings as they are revealed in light; in "Light Revealing Space" the author explores the ways in which light defines the boundary between inside and outside, affects spatial definition, and provides orientation; and in "Light Revealing Meaning" Millet considers the conceptual side of light: contemplative light, theatrical light, metaphorical light, symbolic light, and divine light." "Each chapter ends with an in-depth look at one exemplary building that illustrates significant issues discussed in the chapter."--Jacket.
