by Dohr, Joy H.

by Portillo, Margaret

Take a holistic approach to contemporary interior design. 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.
