What is taste? This well-curated collection documents new theories and emerging critical practices in the field of interior design. It investigates taste, a concept central to the formation of the discipline in the eighteenth century that was repudiated by architects in the early twentieth century, but which continues to play an important role in interior design today. Essays by historians and critics are complemented by interviews with practitioners on the margins of normative practice and portfolios of the work of contemporary designers.

Immigrants in the United States send more than $20 billion every year back to Mexico—one of the largest flows of such remittances in the world. With The Remittance Landscape, Sarah Lynn Lopez offers the first extended look at what is done with that money, and in particular how the building boom that it has generated has changed Mexican towns and villages. Lopez not only identifies a clear correspondence between the flow of remittances and the recent building boom in rural Mexico but also proposes that this construction boom itself motivates migration and changes social and cultural life for migrants and their families. At the same time, migrants are changing the landscapes of cities in the United States: for example, Chicago and Los Angeles are home to buildings explicitly created as headquarters for Mexican workers from several Mexican states such as Jalisco, Michoacán, and Zacatecas. Through careful ethnographic and architectural analysis, and fieldwork on both sides of the border, Lopez brings migrant hometowns to life and positions them within the larger debates about immigration.

Winner of the 2017 IDEC Book Award, 2017 EDRA Great Places Award (Book Category), 2017 American Society of Interior Designers Joel Polsky Prize and the 2016 International Interior Design Association TXOK Research Award Designing for Autism Spectrum Disorders explains the influence of the natural and man-made environment on individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other forms of intellectual/developmental disabilities (IDD). Drawing on the latest research in the fields of environmental psychology and education, the authors show you how architecture and interior spaces can positively influence individuals with neurodiversities by modifying factors such as color, lighting, space organization, textures, acoustics, and ventilation. Now you can design homes, therapeutic environments, work environments, and outdoor spaces to encourage growth and learning for the projected 500,000 children with ASD (in the United States alone) who are expected to reach adulthood by 2024. Topics discussed include: -Environmental design theories -Symptoms of ASD -Sensory processing deficits -Design needs of individuals on the spectrum at all ages -Design methods and solutions for spaces, including residential, learning, work, and therapeutic environments encompassing a wide range of budgets -Designing for self-actualization, well-being, and a high quality of life for the duration of an individual's life -Avenues for healthy living and aging in place -Biophilic design -Environmental impact on well-being -Strategies to promote active living as an integral part of the welfare focus.

Interior Design Masters contains 300 biographical entries of people who have significantly impacted design. They are the people, historical and contemporary, that students and practitioners should know. Coverage starts in the late Renaissance, with a focus on the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The book has five sections, with the entries alphabetical in each, so it can serve as a history textbook and a reference guide. The seventeeth- and eighteenth-century section covers figures from Thomas Chippendale to Horace Walpole. The nineteenth-century section includes William Morris and Candace Wheeler. The early twentieth-century section presents modernism’s design heroes, including Marcel Breuer, Eileen Gray, and Gilbert Rohde. The post-World War II designers range from Madeleine Castaing to Raymond Loewy. The final contemporary section includes Ron Arad and the Bouroullec brothers. These are the canonical figures who belong to any design history. The book also contains less well-known figures who deserve attention, such as Betty Joel, the British art deco furniture designer; Paul Veysseyre, the Frenchman active in China in the 1930s; and more recently Lanzavecchia-Wai, the Italian-Singaporean duo whose work ranges from health care to helicopters. Global in its coverage, the book is richly illustrated with over 600 black-and-white and color photographs.

Tsoi/Kobus & Associates (TK&A) was founded in 1983 by Edward Tsoi and Richard Kobus on a belief in the power of technology and the promise it holds for building types of all kinds. From the early days of its practice, TK&A has sought to apply rigor and beauty in equal measure to the design of even the most technologically complex projects. This principle has guided the firm's search for design solutions that accommodate intensive technical demands while demonstrating sensitivity to human needs for comfort, dignity, and inspiration. This monograph presents an exploration of the firm's architectural philosophy and showcases its expertise in realizing projects of the highest caliber. Coinciding with Tsoi/Kobus & Associates' 25th anniversary, this publication is a celebration of the firm, its founders, and its employees, and is a tribute to a brand of architecture that combines cutting-edge technology with compassion and creativity.

Located in the heart of the state, Texas Hill Country is the place where the four mighty continental divisions-the Rocky Mountains, the Great Western High and Low Plains, and the Gulf Coast Plains-converge. This geophysical drama results in a singular landscape and climate. Rolling hills, sparkling streams and rivers, unique vegetation, and soothing temperatures give this region a special cachet through the entire South. Gone are the one-room farmhouses of yesterday, but taking their place are homes that clearly celebrate historic details borrowed from those iconic structures. A farmer's focus was always his land, and it is land that also plays a major part in these designs, either by the placement of the rooms or how the interiors reflect and complement their environment. The terrain and its indigenous materials-stone, water, sky-now inspire architects and interior designers to create beautiful modern spaces that relate to the classic farmhouses that once dotted the land. The architecture featured here in beautiful full-color photography shows a reverence for native materials such as limestone, cedar, and cypress and the old building techniques that were handed down through generations of early European settlers. They were craftsman-stonemasons, woodworkers, blacksmiths-and their primitive architecture grew out of what they knew from the old country and what they could find to build with in their new land. Their structures were very simple and efficient, but beautiful in their use of materials and craft. Today's interior designers and architects seek to honor those traditions in well-designed new homes made for modern living.
