Echoes or Whispers: Interior voices in the subtropical debate
Smith, Dianne J. (2008) Echoes or Whispers: Interior voices in the subtropical debate. In Subtropical Cities 2008, September 2008, Brisbane, Australia.
Are the concepts subtropical city and interior design connected? This paper seeks to explore the role of interior designers in the discourse of sustainability in a subtropical context. The current debate frequently engages those involved in urban design, planning, architecture and engineering. However, what is the value and consequence of the other design disciplines to the debate? Insights into the level of engagement of interior designers with the sustainability debate in the subtropical context are presented with the intention of fostering awareness and debate. A need for increased engagement by interior designers is proposed with the intention of improving subtropical urban environments.
