Interior Design and Architecture- Critical and Primary Sources is an indispensable multi-volume work of reference that gathers historical and contemporary texts critical to understanding both the past and future directions of interior design.The four volumes bring together over 100 essays and papers from Asia, Europe and North America, covering disciplinary origins in decoration and furnishing, through to recent enquiry into digital interactive spaces and virtual environments. The range of historical, theoretical and methodological approaches examines the social formation and spatial arrangements of interiors as they shift from the sensuous and emotive to the spatial politics of homogenised modernist terrain.Ordered thematically, the volumes cover Design Awareness, Sensory Expectation, Cinematic Engagement and Public Interaction. Each volume is separately introduced and the essays structured into coherent sections on specific themes.Interior Design and Architecture- Critical and Primary Sources will prove a major scholarly resource for researchers involved in the study of the interior.
