About the Author

Graeme Brooker is Head of Interior Design at the Royal College of Art, UK. Between 2013 and 2015 he was the Head of the Department of Fashion and Interiors at Middlesex University, UK. He has authored and co-authored several books on the interior, including Rereadings: Interior Architecture and the Principles of Remodeling Existing Buildings (2004), Form and Structure: The Organisation of Interior Space (2007), Context and Environment: Site and Ideas (2008), The Visual Dictionary of Interior Architecture (2008), Objects and Elements: Occupying Interior Space (2009), What is Interior Design? (2010) and From Organisation to Decoration (2012). He is Founder and Director of the charity Interior Educators, the national subject association for interiors in the UK. Lois Weinthal is Chair of the School of Interior Design at Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada. Her teaching explores these topics, where theoretical discussions are put into practice in the design studio. Her seminar teaching led to the publication Toward a New Interior: An Anthology of Interior Design Theory (2011), which organises the interior as a series of layers that surround the body. Additional publications include the co-edited After Taste: Expanded Practice in Interior Design (2011). In 2016, she became Editor of the international journal Interiors: Design, Architecture, Culture. Weinthal has received grants from the Graham Foundation, Fulbright and DAAD, and has exhibited and lectured internationally. Previously, she directed the Interior Design program at Parsons the New School for Design and was graduate advisor at The University of Texas at Austin.


From uniquely varied viewpoints and scales of exploration, The Handbook of Interior Architecture and Design provides clear-eyed insight into a profession that has evolved dramatically in the last decades to come into its own. It is an important contribution that further clarifies the practice of Interior Architecture in the 21st century. * Lilianne Wong, Head of the Interior Architecture department at Rhode Island School of Design, USA *
