Summary

The 2nd Edition of Sustainable Design for Interior Environmentsbuilds on the premise of the 1st Edition that the interior design profession has a social and moral responsibility to protect the health, safety, and welfare of people and focus on the principles of sustainability and for interior designers to understand how to integrate these principles with design solutions. The content, organization, and pedagogical features of the text integrate the complex topics of sustainability with the design process, enabling students to apply the concepts with the same ease as they apply the elements and principles of design.
