Designing With Light and Shadow

Front Cover
"Perhaps we need to study those past examples once more. Electric power was in adequate supply in the postwar era, and abundance led to a cruder approach to lighting design. Even ways of using darkness were forgotten. In the postwar era, people associated lighting with "electricity", "furniture or electrical appliances" and "properties of light". In the 1990s it has at last risen in stature and come to signify "scenery". We have extrapolated from those past associations and believe that in the future lighting will come to mean the "design of moods". The comfort of an urban environment will come to depend on ineffable factors such as light, sound, air, odor, taste and touch." "Imagine this scene. Lighting fixtures are invisible, but a pleasant light dances in space like a southern breeze at dusk. If we are ever able to make that scene real, then the design of moods may prove more than just a daydream."--BOOK JACKET.
