Mitchell and Wu explore the possibility of creating a new, living philosophy of design in the West using Daoist principles such as feng shui and "green design." Mitchell warns that architects cannot simply import Chinese architecture, or even Daoist philosophy, wholesale from Asia. He does suggest, however, that rethinking and re-imagining Western architecture along Daoist lines is an exciting and innovative way out of the sterility and irrelevance of much of modern and postmodern building design.

"International award-winning designer and TV host Jamie Durie has long been passionate about creating outdoor rooms – luxurious living spaces where we can cook, eat, bathe and sleep outdoors – but he is equally driven to create interiors that bring the outdoors inside. Over the last decade his work has evolved from landscape design into a very successful furniture and interior design practice. At the heart of his design philosophy is his belief that the closer we live to nature, the happier we feel. Living Design explores ‘Transterior’ homes where the interior and exterior of a home merge. In this book Jamie, along with Durie Design’s creative director Nadine Bush, showcases exceptional houses from around the world, including Jamie's own, and demonstrates innovative ways to integrate nature into the home with plants, colours, textures, materials and architecture. Learn how to create a home that is a living sanctuary and make the natural world part of your everyday life." --Back cover.

John P. Marsden has translated research-based information into innovative and practicable design strategies that directly address those unfavorable perceptions of assisted living facilities. He discusses successful humanistic design and presents a conceptual framework, based on consumer-based research, composed of six themes: familiar housing cues, protective enclosure, caring cues, human scale, usability, and naturalness. He applied this framework to specific guidelines for building exteriors, interior entries, and common shared spaces.
