Interior Architecture John Kurtich Garret Eakin The School of the Art Institute of Chicago Increased specialization within the design professions has led to a growing separation of architecture, interior design, and the fine arts and limited the development of humanistic architectural space. This book of ideas helps to close this gap by explaining and illustrating principles of interior architecture that are based on a spatial point of view. The authors unveil the essence of ideas that generate physical form and space, as well as emphasize that interior architecture must be regarded as a union of disciplines. They focus on philosophical concepts that make up the history of interior architecture and juxtapose historical and modern examples to explain underlying design principles, exposing the links between art, architecture,and interior design. Particular attention is given to how fusion of interior architecture with other disciplines maximizes the potential of design to provide for human accommodation, comfort, and pleasure. Key topics discussed include three-dimensional development, respect for the enclosing architecture, sensitivity to human experience, the primacy of light and color, and furnishings as an extension of architecture. Case studies of historical, contemporary, and unbuilt examples reveal the reasons behind the creation of designs and the decision-making that accompanied execution of these designs. These examples provide insights into key specialities such as renovation, uses of the computer, and adaptive reuse. Quotes from artists, architects, and designers reinforce the philosophy revealed by the studies. Concepts from related fields such as physics, music, cinema, literature, painting, sculpture, and other fields are included to clarify the creative process. Among the important areas addressed are:The relevance of the fourth dimension as the most profound element of designHow light as the quintessence of spatial definition has been used to define space by masters such as Le Corbusier, Kahn, Aalto, and WrightThe evolution of retail, commercial, residential, and hospitality space from early examples to the presentThe emotional character of interior space established by colorHow furnishings in dialogue with the enclosure provide intimate human comfortHow persisting styles express the spirit of the eraMore than 400 photographs, including 57 in color, offer a stunning visual exploration of path-breaking interior design ideas over the centuries. Far more than a history of the discipline, this guide offers powerful images and provocative ideas that stimulate new ways of thinking about interior design. It is an essential resource for all interior designers, architects, and students.

Advancements in the Philosophy of Design

This volume presents 25 essays on the philosophy of design. With contributions originating from philosophy and design research, and from product design to architecture, it gives a rich spectrum of state of the art research and brings together studies on philosophical topics in which design plays a key role and design research to which philosophy contributes. Coverage zooms in on specific and more well-known design disciplines but also includes less-studied disciplines, such as graphic design, interior architecture and exhibition design. In addition, contributors take up traditional philosophical issues, such as epistemology, politics, phenomenology and philosophy of science. Some essays cover philosophical issues that emerge in design, for instance what design can do in addressing societal problems, while other essays analyze main-stream philosophical issues in which design is part of the argument, as for instance abduction and aesthetics. Readers will discover new research with insightful analyses of design research, design thinking and the specificity of design. Overall, this comprehensive overview of an emerging topic in philosophy will be of great interest to researchers and students.
