Description

The last half of the twentieth century saw the emergence, evolution and consolidation of a distinct interior design practice and profession. This book provides comprehensive coverage of the significant events and individuals that shaped the evolution of interior design. Through first hand interviews with practitioners and clients, this book identifies how the social and cultural context affected the evolution of the profession and how that evolution separates the history of interior design from that of architecture.

This book is invaluable for students and practitioners, providing a detailed specialist, contemporary historical analysis of their profession and is beautifully illustrated, with over 200 photos and images from the 1950s through to the present day.

About the Author

Drew Plunkett

Drew Plunkett qualified as an architect in 1970. After practicing for nine years and becoming aware of fundamental reassessments taking place in architecture and design theory he enrolled on the Environmental Design course at the Royal College of Art. He graduated in 1981 at a time when interior design offered a particularly exciting testing ground for the new ideas and went on to teach the subject in Belfast, Cardiff and Glasgow. Throughout his academic career he has been a close observer of the emergence and growth of a distinctive interior profession while continuing to practice, principally as a designer of restaurants and exhibitions.
