Interior design, as a relatively young discipline within the academic world of design, has historically been interpreted as an extension of other fine arts. Narratives exist, but they all too often treat interior design as a function of architecture or display rather than experience. An independent interior design theory is virtually nonexistent. Professor Lois Weinthal envisions a future where interior design is treated with parity to architecture and industrial design, a future with a new interior.


Lois Weinthal is Associate Professor of Interior Design at the School of Architecture at The University of Texas at Austin. She studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and Cranbrook Academy of Art.
