The intent of this book is to provide the interior design student a well-rounded knowledge of Autodesk Revit tools and techniques. These skills can then be applied to enhance professional development in both academia and industry. Each book also includes access to nearly 100 video tutorials designed to further help you master Autodesk Revit. The overall premise of the book is to help you learn Revit while developing the interior of a two story law office. At the start of the book you are provided an architectural model with established columns, beams, exterior walls, minimal interior walls and roofs in which to work. This allows more emphasis to be placed on interior design rather than primary architectural elements. The chapters' chronology generally follows the typical design process. You will find this book helps you more accurately and efficiently develop your design ideas and skills. The first chapter introduces you to Revit, Building Information Modeling (BIM) and the basics of opening, saving and creating a new project. The second provides a quick introduction to modeling basic elements in Revit including walls, doors, windows and more. This chapter is designed to show you how powerful Revit truly is and to get you excited for the rest of the book. The remainder of the book is spent developing the interior space of the law office with an established space program. You will learn how to view and navigate within the provided 3D architectural model, manage and create materials and develop spaces with walls, doors and windows. Once all the spaces are added to the model, several areas are explored and used as the basis to cover Revit commands and workflows. At the end of this tutorial, you will be able to model floor finishes, ceilings with soffits, casework, custom reception desk, restrooms, furniture and light fixtures. Additional features such as tags, schedules and photorealistic rendering will be covered.

Design Management is a discipline in continual motion - changing, responding and adapting to the ever increasing dynamics of social and business transformation. The value of design has grown monumentally since its embryonic stages in the late 1970s, and it now reaches far beyond the realm of industry and commerce, forging a strong presence within the public sector institutions and not-for-profit organisations. Design Management is, quite simply, the essential handbook to all things design. Highly international in its approach, the text is structured around four key perspectives - values, horizons, visions and futures. Each individual section is complemented by input from contributors, with industry leaders and policy makers offering real-world commentary. Ultimately, Design Management represents an important and timely contribution to the discipline of design management itself, and correspondingly the development of product and service innovation. The book argues that design management is a key asset in organisational activity throughout a wide and diverse variety of industrial and geographic contexts within an increasingly globalized world. Engaging and accessible in style, Design Management offers students and practitioners everything they need to know to foster a climate of creative engagement.
