Studio environments can be defined as multi-dimensional integrated production spaces where basic design trainings take place and where design issues including theoretical notions such as sociological, political, phenomenological, and other dimensions are discussed. Present approaches within the literature and social media on this topic gives cause for students to evaluate their future professions over finished and pictorial products rather than ontological and processual means. While there are many resources available on the present approaches of aesthetics and visuality of interior spaces, there is not much research available on new design methodologies, related design processes, and new applied methods in interior arcitecture. Based on different contexts, these methods of design practice have the potential to enrich design processes and create multiple discussion platforms within project studios as well as other design media. These different representations and narration methods for research in the context of interior architecture can be effectively used in design processes.

The Handbook of Research on Methodologies for Design and Production Practices in Interior Architecture proposes new design methodologies and related design processes and introduces new applied method approaches while presenting alternative methods that have been used within design studios in the field of interior architecture. The chapters deal with four major sections: the design process and interdiciplinary approaches; then scenario development and content; followed by material, texture, and atmosphere; and concluding with new approaches to design. While highlighting topics such as spatial perception, design strategies, architectural atmosphere, and design-thinking, this book is of interest to architects, interior designers, practitioners, stakeholders, researchers, academicians, and students looking for advanced research on the new design metholodologies and processes for interior architecture.

Author(s)/Editor(s) Biography

Ervin Garip received his undergraduate degree (2000) and his master’s degree (2003) in Architecture at Istanbul Technical University. In 2009, he completed his doctoral studies in Architectural Design program of the same university. During his Ph.D. studies, he served as a visiting scholar in North Carolina State University College of Design (2009). His works have been awarded, exhibited and published by national and international institutions. He currently teaches at the Department of Interior Architecture at Istanbul Technical University as an Associate Professor and works on projects with 1+1 Design Team in Istanbul. He has studies on interior design, urban design, space syntax, wayfinding and orientation, and environmental psychology.
S. Banu Garip is an architect currently holding a PhD degree (2010) in Architectural Design from the Faculty of Architecture, Istanbul Technical University. She got her B.Sc degree (2000), and M.Sc degree (2003) in Architectural Design from ITU. She worked as a visiting scholar at North Carolina State University College of Design, USA in 2009. Her projects have been awarded, exhibited and published by several institutions. Presently she is continuing her professional work at Istanbul Technical University Department of Interior Architecture as an Associate Professor, contributing to design and projects of 1+1. Her studies mostly focus on interior design, urban design, exhibition design, environmental psychology, and housing studies.
