Francis D.K. Ching has been among the most successful authors in Wiley's Professional & Trade Division. Here Ching introduces complex concepts of interior design -- from defining interior space, elements and vocabulary of interior design to explaining interior environmental systems -- through his inimitable approach using words and drawings. A functional and beautifully illustrated work, Interior Design Illustrated offers a visual introduction to the nature and design of interior spaces and the building elements and environmental systems within them. Thoroughly updated to address the current practices in building technology, Interior Design Illustrated is sure to remain the standard reference for many years to come.
