“Occasionally you come across a book that does everything it claims - and then some. This is one” (Blueprint) Architects have been responsible for many of the modern furniture classics of the 20th century - Mies's Barcelona Chair, Eileen Gray's side table and Le Corbusier's chaise longue. Furniture and Architecture takes a unique look at the relationship between architects and furniture design. Focusing not only on classic mid-20th-century design i.e. Eames, Mies, Le Corbusier and Gropius, it also provides a unique insight into who will produce the next generation of classics by asking an international-array of established designers to give their tips for the top young architect-designers. In additional it includes exclusive interviews with high-profile architects as well as with key figures in furniture manufacture and retail. A directory of specialist retailers, who sell architect-designed furniture, makes this an invaluable resource for architects and the interested public. The book includes comprehensive articles and images of popular modernist architects such as Erno Goldfinger, Arne Jacobsen and Eero Saarinen It also features interviews with architects Alvaro Siza, David Adjaye and Selfridges director Vittore Radice Lavishly illustrated with many full-colour images Contains a directory of specialist retailers selling architect-designed furniture

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.

Focused around a hotel suite project, AutoCAD 2011 for the Interior Designer provides the Interior Design student with a non-intimidating, tutorial based, approach to learning the AutoCAD program. It accomplishes this by taking students that have no computer design experience from simple commands to complete projects in this single-semester sized text. This well organized and progressive approach to learning AutoCAD sets this text apart from others. The emphasis of this book is on easy to understand descriptions and instructions, allowing the non-technical, artistic, visual learning Interior Design student to quickly get past the fear of using the computer to produce drawings. The focus is entirely on the use of AutoCAD for the Interior Design field and not simply architectural drawings. Chapters alternate between command descriptions, which are organized by a command set category, and tutorials. This allows students to easily refer back to command descriptions without hunting through a tutorial that introduces commands as it progresses. The emphasis is on the practical use of commands used in the AutoCAD Classic workspace, rather than the multiple (and seldom used) command options. Multiple tutorials of the hotel suite, which includes floor plan, elevation views, dimensioning, and plotting, provide a practical application of the commands learned in the preceding chapters. Completely dimensioned drawings are provided at the beginning of each tutorial so that the advanced student, or an instructor led class, can complete them without going through the step-by-step process. This textbook is classroom proven and relevant interior design homework problems are provided. After completing this book, the student will be able to create all their 2-D Interior Design work using AutoCAD.
