When a journal of interior design/interior architecture comes into being what does it mean for its related field and those with whom it intersects? In Bourdieu’s terms, a field is a domain of meaning in which its constituent players and acts align to give it definition and generate practices that become the evolving rules of the game that continue to be contested. With the appointment of a new executive editor and editorial board in 2008, the 2007 IDEA Journal marks a point of transition and, as such, provides an opportunity to reflect on the evolution of the journal over the past years, its contribution to the field of interior design/interior architecture, and its potential to continue to inform and transform the discipline.
