For courses in Introduction to Interior Design, sophomore-level courses in Materials. Taking into account the dramatic advances being made in materials and technologies, Rigg's innovative text on interior architecture offers a refreshing, synergistic approach to the field while exposing students to many exciting nonstructural materials available to today's designers. With an eye on the environment, it provides a firm understanding of the products, properties, and uses of all materials, covering everything from floors, walls and ceiling to installation, and recycling. Progressing from the ground up-literally-it looks beyond the more decorative aspects of design to study the properties and uses of both finishing materials in the design field and structural materials in the architectural field.
