'I think this is an excellent course book for students who are about to enter, or are considering entering a program of interior design for it touches lightly, but directly, on all aspects of the design process from inception to construction, as well as the modes and means of the production of designs. This book would be a terrific reference for students in preparatory courses and/or the first term in the course of study. The book is clear and the images relate directly to the issues discussed on each spread.' - Anita Cooney, Pratt Institute, USA.

Some of the pictures are beautiful and portray the works of many famous designers. There are also many sketches and construction drawings, which were very helpful in clarifying some of the more practical details of the designs.
After reading this book not only have I come to understand the meaning of very specific terms such as ergonomics and proxemics, but I've also achieved a good understanding of the design process and the methods behind creative projects, space planning and building structures.
I would therefore strongly recommend this text to students and people who would like to learn more about interior design and who want to gain an introduction to the discipline.
