Overview

Contemporary World Interiors is a comprehensive survey of notable currents in interior architecture and design over the past 25 years, describing historical precedents and analyzing future directions. The volume is exhaustive in scope, presenting some 450 projects on six continents in countries as diverse as China, Russia, the Czech Republic, Brail, Israel, Botswana, and South Korea, in addition to Japan, Western Europe, and the United States. More than 400 architects and designers are featured, from world-renowned figures such as John Pawson, Philippe Starck, Peter Marino, Marcel Wanders, and Zaha Hadid, to rising stars such as the Campana Brothers, LOT-EK, Lindy Roy, Italy's UdA, and Japanese firms such as SANAA and Atelier Bow-Wow.

Similar in format to Phaidon's Contemporary World Architecture, this book is organized by category into 11 chapters, and goes far beyond the traditional emphasis on residences and commercial spaces, including religious interiors, performance halls and cultural centers, civic spaces, restaurants, hospitals, and therapeutic spaces, among others. Each chapter is heavily illustrated with color photographs and plans—over 1,000 in total—all reproduced in a generous size and remarkable clarity. Contemporary World Interiors illustrates the public's growing fascination with, and investment in, the designed interior.
