Basics Interior Architecture: Context & Environment

One of the best books in educational literature about interior architecture is translated into Estonian and will be published in the beginning of this academic year. The book is written by two British professors of interior architecture and has earned exceptional 5 stars in Amazon. Graeme Brooker is Head of Interior Design Programme in the famous Royal College of Art and Sally Stone is the Programme Leader for the MArch Architecture programme and Director of the Continuity in Architecture Atelier in the Manchester School of Architecture.

The Basics Interior Architecture series offers an essential introduction to the subject of interior architecture and the ideas that underpin it. Detailed studies of contemporary work are used to support basic theories, making this book an invaluable reference tool to all students of interior architecture and design, as well as civil engineers, real estate developers and readers with general interest in the subject.

The second in this series, „Context + Environment“ examines the ways in which elements based both inside and outside of the building can influence and affect the interior space. The book proposes a method of interpretation, evalutation and utilisation of physical factors, such as light and orientation, the contextual issues of the urban form and the subject of sustainability, and their influences on the design of the interior and the remodelling of existing buildings.

The book is completed by an English-Estonian glossary of interior architecture which consists of a good number of terms that are the common language and terminology of interior design and architecture today.
