Interior design criticism: Between excess and austerity
Franz, Jill M. (2003) Interior design criticism: Between excess and austerity. IDEA Journal, 2003, pp. 11-21.
In this paper, an analysis of a review article in an Australian design magazine is undertaken using a selected model of architectural criticism. While the model is found to be restrictive in facilitating exploration of fundamental philosophical issues in interior design, it does reveal the potential of interior design criticism as a ground for further developing and defining interior design’s distinctive qualities and possibilities. The paper shows that a special aspect of the critical ground is its ability to accommodate oppositional concepts and through the tension in their proximity to provide for more constructive debate and exploration.
