The world is increasingly and rapidly being affected by environmental and technological changes. It is imperative that the design profession address these developments with a new way of thinking. This book points the way for the design of interiors in this newly complex world and will be indispensable for students, practitioners, and theoreticians.
The book is divided into four chapters that explore aspects of the human experience of the interior, from man's earliest search for shelter to an outline of past and current thinking on design, psychology and well-being. An epilog looks at such future concerns as population growth and sustainability and suggests how the design profession can confront these challenges.
Rethinking Design and Interiors is a fascinating exploration of how art and science can come together for the benefit of those who inhabit the built environment.
