Out Now: Bright 2

Bright 2 showcases a rich selection of architectural illumination and light installation projects from across the globe.

This illuminating volume – the second in the Bright series – captures the feeling of how light and projections can elevate a building, bridge or even an entire city centre. The collection of 44 illustrated projects realised by top-level artists, designers and manufacturers are setting trends with the creative usage of light. Divided into three chapters – dynamic, interactive and static – the 8-page articles not only demonstrate the dazzle, spectacle and lure of the bright lights in big cities with descriptive texts and outstanding imagery; they are also brimming with technical details. All the major works include descriptions outlining how the lighting designers have sculpted the illuminated scenarios, detailing the specific challenges they had to overcome. Within each article, the designers are profiled as well as other various projects from their studios.

This 368-page book has a beautiful tactile cover and is an up-to-date reference tool for professionals working with light in design, architecture and the artistic fields. Bright 2 reflects the current role of illumination as a multifaceted design element and, in doing so, literally sheds new light on the future of architecture and design.
