Interior Design Educator's Council "Sustaining Interior Design Education" Update

4.27.09 | Kimball Office and Teknion joined forces to carry the message of Sustaining Interior Design Education to over a thousand interior design firms and studios in architectural firms across North America.

These companies and others were prompt to act to create awareness within the interior design profession of the realistic concern about where the next generation professional interior design educators will come from. This concern is becoming critical as many educators in this field near retirement.

Its semi-annual Consensus Construction Forecast Report predicted an 11% decline in design and construction activity this year and, in response, the organization has developed the Rebuild and Renew Plan, a recommendation to President-elect Obama's administration and Congress regarding the allocation of funds in the administration's economic recovery plan.
