Fiber Optics in Architectural Lighting: Methods, Design, and Applications
Since the discovery of fire, there has been an ongoing search for better lighting—lighting that has the preferred properties of longevity, safety, energy-efficiency, ease of handling, and clarity. Fiber-optic technology satisfies these criteria and more, and so offers another tool for functional illumination. This trailblazing, comprehensive book presents an introduction to this revolutionary technology in easily understandable terms. It offers suggested applications for task, display, architectural, contour, transportation, museum, garden, water, and historical illumination. Fiberoptics in Architectural Lighting contains practical information in plain English; an arsenal of step-by-step checklists, how-to illustrations, color photos, plans, and examples of completed installations; and actual case studies of commercial, residential, institutional, industrial, and historic building projects from around the world, illustrating practical tips and caveats that provide the best results at the lowest cost. Whether you’re an architect or designer, this all-in-one reference does more than any other guide to help you realize fiber-optic lighting indoors and outdoors and in every type of building. And that makes Fiberoptics in Architectural Lighting a resource you simply can’t do without.
