Research-Based Programming for Interior Designers prepares students to practice interior design as a knowledge-based activity. Students will learn how to use quality information from previously published sources as well as original research data to develop strategies for design solutions and client communication. Representing an evolution of author Lily Robinson's previous book Research-Inspired Design: A Step-by-Step Guide for Interior Designers (co-authored with Alexandra Parman Pitts in 2009), this new iteration focuses on the written program document as a project deliverable which connects research to the design process. In keeping with the broad scope of the previous version, this text explores student-led data-gathering techniques such as interviews, surveys, and observation and clearly illustrates how interior designers consult and coordinate with design-related fields from pre-design/programming through design development and beyond. Features · Art program includes student process work examples and clear graphic explanations of complex concepts. · Activities help students brainstorm research topics, formulate research questions, conduct field studies, seek out experts and create design concepts · Appendices provide a project program template and a student example to help students visualize their own project program.

Programming Interior Environments introduces a four-component framework you can use to program interiors, and twelve methods for you to gather, analyze and synthesize programmatic information to take the guesswork out of your studio projects. This book studies the Student Programming Model: a realistic programming process for college and university interior design students that allows students to create accurate and in-depth programming documents essential for informing the design process. This is done whilst keeping in mind that students are often working solo, with imaginary clients and end users in mind, and collecting program information within strict time constraints. Including three appendices of student programs created following these guidelines, to help you understand how to apply the framework components and inquiry methods in your own work, this book is ideal for students and professionals in interior design and interior architecture.

In order to succeed, human factors research must blend the subjective and objective aspects of the client's situation, applying both argument and evidence. How to accomplish this complex and very necessary goal is the subject of this book in which information systems, research methods, and evaluation procedures have been formulated as elements in an application strategy that makes possible the blending of research and design. Three main themes are maintained throughout the book: the concern to ensure that designers know how to conduct human factors research in an effective and efficient manner; the emphasis on obtaining the benefits possible when designer and client work in collaboration; and the possibility that what is presented should stimulate thoughtful ideas about new computer applications or database features. Human factors research is fundamentally a problem of information development. Using the standardized information system presented in the book, the promise found in human factors research can readily be realized as the research questions and methods given provide a strategy and means for situational analysis. A necessary adjunct to human factors research is a means for assessing findings and translating them into specific design objectives, criteria, and specifications. The evaluation procedures described are directed toward these very complex requirements and provide a means for database development. The final chapter of the book contains research strategies, guidelines for establishing scopes of work, schedules, and budgets, and suggestions for proposals for those situations in which standard fees do not provide sufficient funds for human factors research. The book is written primarily for architects, interior designers, and students of environmental design. Many others will also find it of value: those who employ professional design services, executives who formulate policy for facility development and capital investment, administrators of housing, community service, educational, and recreational programs, developers concerned with community acceptability and marketability, managers of office buildings, industrial plants, and service and retail stores, and those who plan to design their own environments - all need a systematic approach to assure full benefits from their efforts and capital investments.

This Handbook presents a broad overview of the current research carried out in environmental psychology which puts into perspective quality of life and relationships with living spaces, and shows how this original analytical framework can be used to understand different environmental and societal issues. Adopting an original approach, this Handbook focuses on the links with other specialties in psychology, especially social and health psychology, together with other disciplines such as geography, architecture, sociology, anthropology, urbanism and engineering. Faced with the problems of society which involve the quality of life of individuals and communities, it is fundamental to consider the relationships an individual has with his different living spaces. This issue of the links between quality of life and environment is becoming increasingly significant with, at a local level, problems resulting from different types of annoyances, such as pollution and noise, while, at a global level, there is the central question of climate change with its harmful consequences for humans and the planet. How can the impact on well-being of environmental nuisances and threats (for example, natural risks, pollution, and noise) be reduced? How can the quality of life within daily living spaces (home, cities, work environments) be improved? Why is it important to understand the psychological issues of our relationship with the global environment (climatic warming, ecological behaviours)? This Handbook is intended not only for students of various disciplines (geography, architecture, psychology, town planning, etc.) but also for social decision-makers and players who will find in it both theoretical and methodological perspectives, so that psychological and environmental dimensions can be better taken into account in their working practices.
