Take a holistic approach to contemporary interior
The interior design process is changing. In order to create
truly engaging work, designers are developing a deeper and broader
understanding of how design theory, research, and existing practice
can help them make better decisions. This inquiry provides answers
on how design is experienced, and its impact over time.
At the same time, the profession is becoming increasingly
collaborative. Designers today work closely with other
professionals-such as architects, landscape designers, product
designers, anthropologists, and business consultants-in new ways,
engaging an expanding network of experts in the design process more
than ever before.
Written by renowned scholars Joy Dohr and Margaret Portillo, the
book brings interior design theory and research to life utilizing a
narrative inquiry approach that offers highly accessible coverage
of the interior design world as it exists today. By looking at
real-life stories that demonstrate what makes a memorable design,
coupled with photographs and drawings to further illustrate these
concepts, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in keeping
abreast of interior design in the twenty-first century.
