This paper argues against the second
course of title change for interior design (from
‘interior design’ to ‘interior architecture’). Heuristic
reasoning based on design theory argues that interior
design is an architectural discipline. Interior design
experiences professional embarrassment (based on its
marginalisation within the architectural profession)
over the decorative aspects of its ontology, resulting
in a situation where the discipline attempts title
change to differentiate itself from a ‘less
professional’ occupation (i.e. interior decoration) to
assert its legitimacy. Title change may lead to
artificial differentiations between ‘interior design’
and ‘interior architecture’ which will eliminate
decoration from the discipline’s repertoire, leaving it
impoverished. If interior design is defined broadly,
differentiation between interior design and interior
architecture will be redundant.
