Description

The ongoing challenge for the design practitioner is to consider the changing face of the user - the client - when designing the environment today and in the future. This text fulfills a huge void that exists in teaching resources on the non-Western cultures and provides a much needed educational resource so that other educators can teach interior design from an inclusive perspective which acknowledges the contributions of all world cultures, not just western European traditions.

Each unit will represent a selected country and provide information on that country's culture, design philosophies, theories, principles and elements and symbolic meaning evident in built forms, colors, patterns, and textiles, as told by contributors native to the country.

The key features of the book include: examines developments, events, and conditions that affect people with differing needs and a range of cultural, social, and psychological levels; supports the CIDA (Council of Interior Design Accreditation) assessment for changes in interior design programs identified in CIDA's Future Vision task force; integrates analysis of interior environments that includes global sources of inspiration; includes discussion questions, assignments, projects/exercises list of recommended additional readings; Instructor's Guide provides suggestions for planning the course and using the text in the classroom; and, PowerPoint[registered] Presentation provides outlines and ideas for lectures; compatible with PC and Mac platforms.
