building systems for interior designers

Interior design has a relatively short history as a profession requiring special training and demanding technical expertise. Over the past half century, design professionals have shifted from decorators working primarily in private residences to essential contributors to the design of commercial and residential buildings.

Building Systems for Interior Designers is primarily designed as a textbook for interior design students. The style aims for clarity, with concepts explained simply and delivered in everyday language. Sufficient technical information is provided to allow a thorough understanding of how a building works. The illustrations are numerous and designed to convey the information in a clear and visual way. I kept in mind the many students for whom English is a second language, as well as the technophobes common among us, when I wrote and illustrated this text. Throughout the book you will find special "Designer Tips". Look for this icon to find useful professional tips on a wide range of topics.
