This work concerns the interrelationship of the design professional - interior design, architecture, landscape architecture and urban planning. It positions rooms, building, landscape and city in a common context in which the needs of the individual and of society must be addressed in similar ways. It shows designers how to think and to design beyond the boun daries of their chosen professions. Issues of social use, spatial relationships and humanistic goals, as well as more formal topics such as shape, light, colour and material are addressed. The book confronts the key how and why issues of environmental design and applies them to the design of healthy buildings in which to live and work and outdoor spaces that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
