In Designing for Designers: Lessons Learned from Schools of Architecture, authors Jack L. Nasar, Wolfgang F.E. Preiser, and Thomas Fisher examine the designs of 17 architecture and design schools. They answer questions such as: How has architectural education evolved and what is its future? Are architectural schools built with discernable types of designs and what are their effects on those who experience them? What lessons can be learned from evaluations of recently completed school buildings and what guidance do they provide for the design of future ones? At the heart of this text lies the proposition that we should design as if people matter and Designing for Designers will make readers more aware of problems in architectural interiors and suggest ways to make interiors work better for the building occupants.
