Lighting in the majority of contemporary architectural practice is badly designed. We generally over illuminate our urban environment
by both day and night according to poorly designed lighting schemes. Current training and
discourse regarding architectural lighting design
is either overly simplistic, or discouragingly technical. Insufficient thought is being given to the experience of the spaces created.

This book investigates the perception and use of
darkness, shadow and contrast in architecture. With the aim of constructing a more nuanced discussion of lighting in terms of quality rather than quantity of illumination.
