Ching's bestselling approach to interior design—updated in this new, expanded edition

In this elegant new edition, Francis D.K. Ching takes his integrated approach to interior design several steps further. A highly functional and beautifully illustrated work, Interior Design Illustrated, Third Edition offers a thorough introduction to interior design, addressing the architectural requirements of interior spaces and the details of furnishing and interior finishes.

A broad range of rich illustrations communicates visual information and ploughs fertile ground for creative ideas and inspiration.

  • Building codes, building information modeling, and sustainability

  • Indoor air quality, environmental systems, data/communication, and security systems

  • Translating functional needs into design decisions

  • Integrating environmental, health, safety, comfort, and conveyance systems into a building's structure and the design of its interior space

  • The functional, aesthetic, and expressive roles design elements can play in the development of three-dimensional space

Be cautious that this is NOT equivalent of the awesome "Building Construction Illustrated" in interior design. It is about interior DESIGN and not interior CONSTRUCTION. So if, like me, you are looking for a book about interior construction, sizes, standards, etc, look elsewhere.

By Pen Name and That A - Published on
Format: Paperback
Emphasises the architectural side of interior design, rather than the paint n' fabric side of it; this is not the reason for the good review, you just need to be aware. What was really good was the density of the ideas that were presented. By 'dense' I don't mean that they were not accessible, I mean that there were a lot of them, they were accessible, they were well organised and it was easy to add them, one to the next to have a whole body of knowledge. You know how some books have so many words and manage not to say much? Well, this book was the opposite. A book guilty of doing that is Interior Design (4th Edition), but it still has a lot of information in it because it is so big.

HASH(0x9a2422ac) out of 5 stars beautifully illustrated book June 24 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is amazingly illustrated. It really captured my imagination and sparked a lot of creativity in me. I'm not a design professional nor student but merely a homeowner going through my first home renovation. The drawings present the concepts in such a great way that resonates even with a layperson like me. This really made me appreciate the design discussions I am having with my architect and interior designers. If i was an architecture or interior design student, I would hope that this book was a core text in the curriculum. There is so much knowledge and theory packed into every page that you can gaze at any portion of a page and feel like you are soaking in centuries of interior design learning.
