  • prepares and administers bids and contracts documents as the client's agent.

  • Review and evaluates design solutions during implementation and upon completion.

  • if designers share the trend in design education towards problem seeking (rather than problem solving) and a more fully theorised approach to habitation, they can better asses how their own practices will best mesh with an increasingly complex world and better rethink and refresh their approach to the work of design to meet the world's challenged. In looking at the education of interior designer, it is essential to develop an approach to design education that embraces the changing understanding of both interiority and the practice, theory, a long-life learning of design.

Interior Designer
  • Hybrid profession whose roots trace back to architecture, the fine and decorative arts, graphic design and even home economics.

  • The real subject of interior design is ENCLOSED SPACE - that is, the SETTING within buildings, that house human activity. First and foremost, interior designers are concerned with how people EXPERIENCE these settings : CULTURAL IMPACT.

  • " Form follows strategy."

  • The profession interior design is qualified by education, experience, and examination to enhance the function and quality of interior spaces for purpose of improving the quality of life, increase productivity, and protect thehealth, safety and wellfare of the public.

  • If i.d. as a sustainable practice is to concern itself with the understanding of current conditions to propose new forms of practice, it must develop its own critical history, theory, and philosophy based on the nature and quality of human habitation.

  • The i.d. community, its schools, offices, and related industries generate a rich body of knowledge about human beings and the environment. This community must begin to share this knowledge and connect the activity in academia with the research of firms and manufacturers. This sharing must also address and reach out to begin to build value in design. In the light of such a complex task, developing the designer is a life-long educational process, a process that must be emphasized and supported more fully than it is now by the the educational system.

  • Field has enlarged to include differentiated pracctices in the public realm - design of work place, commercial spaces, industrial applications, furniture, entertainment environment, and immersive virtual worlds.

  • The expanding field of interiors puts more demands on academia and on the need for establishing a strong commitment to continuing education.

  • reference where the building blocks of questioning, creative thinking, insightful research, and problem seeking are not introduced as an essential part of elementary or secondary education.

  • Full-time academics required to contribute to a theoretical and philosophical basis for Interior Design.

  • Students are expected to make connections - between culture and design, between themselves and the world.

  • COOPERATIVE MODEL : architectural firms that have both design and technical teams who work collaboratively on larer corporate projects.

  • SEPARATED MODEL : firms that deal i the tenant improvement realm, architects oversee project management, while interior designers contribute colour, materials and treatments.

  • THIRD MODEL : the interior design firm, which features the 'designer as decorator' works mostly residential.

  • ARCHITECTURAL MODEL : architects work as "master builders" and integrate both external and internal space conception, detailing and completion.

  • Profession needs to serve as an educational advocate to the public - workling relationships between parties. Transforming information into innovation.

  • Students are considering and looking at : industrial design, graphic design, furniture design, fashion design, and architecture, and education in interior.

  • STUDENTS are expected to broadening their relationship with architectural education whilte they maintain intimate relationships with user-centered design, lighting, details, furnishings, and materials.

  • " As a professional, I expect to work in a field which is increasingly open to experimentation and which invites the designer to take part in creating real environments, not just shells. I expect colour and delight to become more important to interior design. I expect good design to be seen as an important factor in a happy life."

  • Requires ALUMNI.

  • Constantly evolving and changing - design is always rethinking itself, reflecting on its parameters, questioning existing constraints with its contribution.

From a grade listed refurbishment or loft conversion to a conversion of an old industrial building into a new usable home or work space - i.a. assess your needs and define the goal to maximise each space.

  • the SPIRIT in which these buildings are conceived sees all these together at work as one thing.

  • Both the physical and the virtual biounds of interiority, are expanding and opening, as is the understanding of what constitutes design and who is a designer.

  • "... attempting to the condensing and intensifying capacities of interiority, finding in containing space with its appeals to, and affecting of, refuge, shelter and limitation - a political concentration, even when that communing may be as modest as a soliditary confining space.

  • The question arising such isomorphism is, what allegiances, political compromises, spatial configurations, and freedoms might interiority portend now??

  • in terms of UNSETTLEMENT?

  • "... wonder is the motivating force behind mobility in all its dimensions." interiority mobilises unanticipated encounters with new species of space and thought.
