This Chapter glances at the shifting landscape of disciplines and professions, with particular focus towards “Interior Design.” In spite of trends and increasing examples of the erosion and overlapping of disciplinary and professional boundaries, ironically or not, there remains the need for some sort of de nition; in other words, there needs to be a body of knowledge and skills de ned and practiced. This is especially relevant in a world of inter-, multi-, and trans-disciplinary work and comprehensive creative practices. After a very quick look at “Environmental Design” – or the design of environments and experiences – the paper spends a bit more time examining possible core aspects of Interior Design while promoting its expanded eld. An articulated interior urbanism creates clear areas of contribu- tion from the interior designers within the city. Additionally, the chapter explores the curricular use of intensive design workshops with a singular focus of the student’s attention; selected student work from Politecnico di Milano is included.
