Lumitecture

Illuminating Interiors for Designers & Architects

Anna Yudina

£32.00

A global overview of the most exciting lighting designs for interior spaces, featuring the latest interactive technologies, energy-efficient systems and otherworldly experiences

Overview

Light makes an architectural space livable, shapes it and guides us within it. The role of light reaches well beyond practical needs to create environments, emotions and spatial illusions. Today, as our homes and buildings have 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. 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.

Some 200 projects 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.
