General Public 

Lois Weinthal and Graeme Brooker, two pioneers exploring the expanding discourse of interior design at the intersection of theory and practice, share their insight and introduce their newest book, The Handbook of Interior Architecture + Design.  

The Handbook, edited by Brooker and Weinthal, is a collection of original essays which examine the complex role of the interior and its design. Subjects range from human behavior and anthropology to cultural geography and the future of technology. Author, and Parsons faculty member, Alexa Griffith Winton will contribute her perspective included in the book.

Lois Weinthal is the Chair of Interior Design at Ryerson University in Toronto and Graeme Brooker is the Head of Interior and Fashion Design at Middlesex University in England. Their explorations of the interior and its multiplicity of understandings have influenced design students worldwide and continue to chart new territories for the future of the interior design field.

This event is being sponsored by the School of Constructed Environments in Parsons The New School for Design.
