"Interior architecture is not about cosmetic surgery but about complete organ transplant. The individuals and companies featured in this book are not only working with surface and appearance but also in the control of shape, space, services, and identity." So states the author in her opening essay.
An invaluable introduction to the key names and projects in contemporary interior architecture, this book covers the work of 55 international practitioners. It includes both the firmly established and the up and coming; the classic and the more experimental. For each entry there are 6 pages that contain a critical appraisal as well as full biographical details. This is followed by images of the key works by that designer concentrating on the most recent but also the iconic where relevant. Those featured control the shape of public spaces, services, and identity to reflect the demands of the 21st century.
