It starts by unraveling the different bodies, tasks, processes, skills, people, requirements and much more that govern the profession as an interior designer. The reader gets a clear and defined idea of the complexity of the interior design sector and the interior design profession. The author leads the reader though the different elements which constitutes an interior and offers a comprehensible structure. Interspersed with various visual examples and quotations of fellow designers, educators and philosophers a foundation is provided for subsequent chapters.
In Part Two and Part Three of the book a wide range of issues are discussed concerning the human body and the perception of its surrounding. It equally touches on the basic form, the mathematical definitions of shapes, evolutions and movements through time, as well as the western and oriental philosophical interpretations of humans interacting with their environment. It can be used as a reference and starting point for further explorations. Presented in an informative and condensed format it is an extensive list of issues; be it form, dimensions, visual perceptions, theories and much more; which forms the basic knowledge for the interior designer to practice his profession.
In the final part the design process gets analyzed. How is information gathered, ideas created and problems analyzed? What controls the design process and how is it translated into a three-dimensional form or layout? The author also discusses spatial and operational activities within a created space or environment in relation to the common items we encounter in an interior (doors, stairs, seating facilities, etc.) He often draws on notable movements and designers/architects of the past to clarify different design subjects.
