Enter the world of the stylish Japanese house, where every object in sight is a work of art. Japan Style introduces 20 special residences. With more than 200 color photographs, this book showcases the stunning beauty of old homes, and reveals how they are cared for by their owners.
Traditional Japanese homes, with superbly crafted fine wood, great workmanship and seasonal interior arrangements, have an aesthetic of infinite simplicity. Unlike Japanese inns and historical buildings, the houses featured in this book are private property and are not open to public viewing.
Minimalism continues to be among the most popular themes in interior design. Inside MNM: Minimalist Interiors explains minimalist concepts and concentrates on private interiors. This guide includes dozens of sophisticated photographs and introductions to each chapter written by leaders of this extraordinary, contemporary design movement. All the examples featured in the book have one thing in common: they feature the essential, but use the minimal.
The inspiration for Building Systems for Interior Designers
came when I tried to teach interior design students
about all the ways buildings support our activities and
physical needs—without an adequate textbook. I needed
an approach that supported the special concerns of the
interior designer, while connecting those issues to the
work of the rest of the building design team.
This book is for students of building design: architecture, architectural tech-nology, building, construction management, interior design and surveying. By ‘students’ I refer to those just embarking on a course of study related to building, and the professionals who deal with detail design issues on a daily basis.

The domain is secondary to our agenda: our main goal is not to build a learning
system for furniture design. Rather, ﬂat-pack furniture design provides a test case
for system development to investigate design critiquing. It is an interesting domain
where students encounter many structural and spatial design issues as they make
stable furniture out of ﬂat materials. For this reason, furniture making is often used
as an early exercise for ﬁrst-year design and architecture students.
