The ASID INSIGHTS Briefs demonstrate the significance of interior design, its relationships to other disciplines, and future opportunities with interior designers leading the conversation. The focus on human-centered design is presented through the lens of:
The briefs identify opportunities to connect, lead, and collaborate on issues related to the built environment. They provide conceptual guidance models for design inspiration, connect theories of evidence-based design to practice, and present key influencing factors that impact the design professions.
The ASID IMPACT Review INSIGHTS Briefs were written based on the work of the ASID IMPACT Review Task Force, which was led by Co-Chairs Linda Sorrento FASID, LEED Fellow and Barbara Marini PhD, FASID, IDEC, ICC who also authored the briefs. ASID and the authors would like to thank our collaborators and the Task Force who acted as the review body for the research in support of evidence-based design initiatives. We would also like to thank our partners and sponsors for their support of this work.
Health and well-being are the most critical concerns related to COVID-19 in terms of the built environment, impacting multiple sectors, specializations, and all people.
Building design, systems, and technology represents the most interdisciplinary part of understanding COVID-19 and the work of interior designers.
Implications for a significant paradigm shift in the interior design profession have evolved as a result of COVID-19.
Collaboration with other disciplines (architecture, materials science, lighting, mechanical, engineering, and biological) has been identified as a significant component in dealing with COVID-19 in the built environment.
Essentials highlights the relationship of current research to the interior design profession and its significance to other groups.
