"In the first chapter of Designing with Light, Meyers summarizes recent developments in the science of light and their cultural impact, and then surveys the uses of light in contemporary visual art, theater, film, and even music. This overview reveals how the work of artists as diverse as videographer Bill Viola, stage director Robert Wilson, and composer John Cage can lend architects insight into the properties of light. Each of the following chapters is devoted to one aspect of light in contemporary architecture, beginning with Color and continuing with Lines, Form, Glass, Windows, Sky Frames, Shadows, and, finally, Reflections. Within these chapters, some two hundred vivid color photographs illustrate the myriad ways in which architects like Zaha Hadid, Herzog & de Meuron, Rem Koolhas, and John Pawson have employed light, internally and externally, in their recent commissions. Enriched with this abundance of images, as well as with numerous insights from Meyers's own architectural practice, Designing with Light will appeal to every student, practitioner, and enthusiast of contemporary architecture."--BOOK JACKET.
