http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/10/signs-become-a-designer_n_3900582.html?utm_hp_ref=decor#! Well why didn’t you tell me that 35 years ago? More proof, or evidence as we design wonks are prone to call it, that our professional identity is…..well it isn’t professional and it isn’t really an identity. More of a joke……… Then why am I weeping?
RETHINKING THE BUILDING PERFORMANCE PARADIGM
Over the past 20 years there has been a remarkable shift in how we design and build buildings. In response to a rising concern over the impact buildings have on our environment those who have even the most minute stake in creating the built environment are now aware, if not directly influenced by, the effort…

IT’S THE LAW….SOMEWHERE…SOMEHOW!
PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER’s version will include a revision date, and info on legislative status when possible. I will try to update it once a month or whenever critical information becomes available. I also hope to begin acknowledging Interior Design regulation efforts on a global basis.
