The design of interiors, alongside the other design disciplines, is a vital task in the shaping of our built environment. In this book, an international and interdisciplinary team of authors gives an extensive account of today's main areas of work in interior architecture and design. Illustrations of contemporary projects, selected consistently throughout the book, cover the breadth of typical interior design tasks as well as a wide range of possible design approaches. This book is a fundamental reference work for all those professionally involved in the design of interiors.
