Summary This book is about social, cultural and philosophical essays about spaces, people and the designed world. As society rapidly changes, so too does our relationship with design and the spaces of the designed world. Meanings of Designed Spaces is a collection of articles by -- and interviews with -- renowned design academics and professionals exploring how people make meaning using design today, and how "designed space" both shapes and is shaped by technology, business, ethics, culture, sustainability and society. Questions posed include: How does designing our world provide meaning in our lives? How is this meaning constructed? What is design research within this framework? How do interiors influence our social, cultural and psychological ways of being? How is the designer's role evolving in relationship to other stakeholders? What are possible ways we can understand and respond to the social, political, ethical and cultural issues we face? The book's subject matter moves from the theoretical to the practical and includes, at times, contradictory viewpoints, providing a springboard for conversation and debate.
