teNeues, 2005 - 512 pagine
The lighting designer is at once an artist and an engineer. He uses the best technology available to reveal scope, space, and form-both in landscapes and in urban environments-and aims to do so in a way that achieves a functional, creative, and environmental result. This relatively recent profession is the focus of the latest title in teNeues' Ultimate series. Lighting Design presents an illustrated overview of Hervé Descottes' many projects. Founder of the renowned New York design firm L'Observatoire International, Descottes collaborated with architects such as Steven Holl (Kiasma Museum of Modern Art, Helsinki), Frank Gehry (Walt Disney Concert Hall, LA), Mario Botta, Jean Nouvel and OMA/Rem Koolhaas (three museums in Seoul, South Korea), and Richard Meier (Restaurant 66, New York City). Hervé Descottes is an award-winning architectural lighting designer. He founded the New York City design firm L'Observatoire International after eight years of design practice in Paris. A lavishly illustrated guide to lighting design through the varied projects of the renowned New York firm L'Observatoire International Projects illustrated include concert halls, restaurants, and museums in Europe, North America and Asia as well as a pollution control plant and urban landscapes in New York 730 colour photos
