Manuscript Essentials for the Everyday Use of Interior Architects and Designers 2nd edition
MANUscript is a reference book sui generis: a combination of inspiration, guide, and notebook. It explores basic aspects of interior design (ceilings, floors, walls, doors, stairs) and the relevant materials used (rugs, wall paint, glass, wood products, stone, concrete). It also focuses on means of recording and communicating designs: methods of representation, practical tables, rules of thumb, and hands-on suggestions. This updated and expanded second edition addresses new and important topics in day-to-day design practice, discusses how to use plants in green facades, space-defining shrubs, the staging potential of light, and also lists key terms in a multilingual table. There are also stimulating statements on design-related issues from prominent architects, interior designers, and designers. An additional special feature of this publication are the pages with space for personal additions, observations, and notes. Axel Müller-Schöll is an architect and interior designer. He teaches at Giebichenstein University of Art and Design in Halle (Germany).
