What's in the book

The Book

The State of the Interior Design Profession provides an informed view of the interior design profession as it stands, challenging students and inspiring them to consider their role and responsibility in developing the profession’s future. Martin and Guerin have identified 12 issues integral to the future development of the interior design profession. Renowned and emerging interior design thinkers (authors), who represent complementary and conflicting viewpoints on the same issue, have written their opinions (essays) in response to each issue. Their experiences are diverse; they have contributed to practice, industry, publication, research, education, engagement, and service—and many to several of these. Their responses reflect the currency of their opinions, thoughts, and research on the issue.
