Programming Interior Environments: A Practical Guide for Students (Paperback)Cynthia M. Karpan (author)
- Coming soon
Programming Interior Environments introduces a four-component framework you can use to program interiors, and twelve methods for you to gather, analyze and synthesize programmatic information to take the guesswork out of your studio projects.
This book studies the Student Programming Model: a realistic programming process for college and university interior design students that allows students to create accurate and in-depth programming documents essential for informing the design process. This is done whilst keeping in mind that students are often working solo, with imaginary clients and end users in mind, and collecting programme information within strict time constraints.
Including three appendices of student programs created following these guidelines, to help you understand how to apply the framework components and inquiry methods in your own work, this book is ideal for students and professionals in interior design and interior architecture.

"Karpan comprehensively deals with the most intractable conundrum in design education: preparing our students to enter the work-force when our university courses cannot replicate future, real-life situations. Chapter by chapter, she systematically unpicks the complexities of programming and, in doing so, provides a framework for students that it is valuable, necessary and manageable."
Russell Gagg, Principal Lecturer Interior Architecture and Design, Arts University Bournemouth
"This textbook describes the background of programming that supports its use and, then, introduces students to a method especially suitable for lower division students. It provides an excellent companion to other programming related textbooks that allows upper division students to learn a wide-range of programming views before entering the workforce."
Linda L. Nussbaumer, PhD, IDEC, NCIDQ
"Strong, thoughtful programming is the foundation of effective design solutions. In this book, Cynthia has covered all the bases - both the theoretical and the practical in a narrative style that is informal and engaging. This will be an asset to students and teachers in developing designers with strong programming skills."
