As London has discovered a more urbane attitude to interiors, a wealth of designers and architects has begun a revolution in the treatment of the capital's interior spaces. New London Interiors brings together the best work of the new millenium - including houses, apartments, restaurants, bars, museums, art galleries, theatres, cinemas, boutiques, salons, gyms, and even schools, colleges and offices - and shows how interiors are the springboard for some of Britain's brightest architectural talents, and a field that engages some world-renowned names. Critical texts by architecture critic Kieran Long evaluate the projects in the context of design, architecture, materials and fashion to create an absorbing snapshot of the state of contemporary interior design.

As the baby boom generation ages, it is crucial that designers understand all they can about bringing this group, as well as all others, design that will offer function, aesthetics, and quality of life. Full of examples and illustrated with pictures of good design, Universal Design: Principles and Models details how the principles of universal design (UD) can be used to evaluate all products and places. Universal design is ubiquitous; therefore good examples are essential to understanding. This book includes more than 50 case studies that demonstrate successful applications of UD principles and helps professors develop curriculum and teaching strategies. More than 300 color photographs and drawings further illustrate the principles and best practices. The book includes topics ranging from the development of ergonomic chairs for home and office to the unique environmental concerns of those sensitive to electronic and chemical emissions. The examples illustrate a variety of user/groups in different situations and clearly demonstrate the design directives for meeting their needs. The author explores the many definitions of UD, enabling readers to identify those most meaningful to large portions of the population. Universal design (UD) facilitates the comfort and navigation of those with failing eyesight or restricted mobility, and the family members and professionals who care for them. Whether at home, work, or a public place, people appreciate the beautiful and the practical. This book takes a vital and meaningful approach, going beyond the basics and delving into details. It gets to the heart of UD and supplies an understanding of design from a greater perspective.
Finally, the Environmental Design Research Association attracts a growing
number of researchers to its annual meeting, providing the interior designer with
