Life from the Inside:
Perspectives on Social Sustainability & Interior Architecture
Keywords:Interior architecture, Social sustainability, Design
Life from the inside: Perspectives on social sustainability and interior architecture is a a unique contribution to the interior architecture and design discipline. Featuring a collection of essays on the relationship between design and sustainability, the book filters the potentially broad sustainability discourse through a concern with the social. Social sustainability is understood here as an anthropocentric and future-focused condition that sustains social capital and specificity through the generations. The text focuses on how people live in their built environments and how one might practice or ‘do’ collaborative design processes. Interior architecture is established here as the design of the interface between environment and people, and more radically as a facilitator of fundamental needs and of social justice.
