The Journal of the Korean Institute of Interior Design was founded in 1992 and has become the representative journal in Asia in the field of interior design. It strives steadily to fulfill its role as a journal that leads the academic development of interior design by actively engaging with practice and facilitating exchange between researchers.
As modern society shifts and changes, it is critical that interior design responds. Interior design represents a leading area of space, art, and culture, and its importance is increasingly recognized as industrial society develops. The spatial culture of modern society must integrate professional and academic knowledge systems with artistic perspectives that emphasize creativity and form.
Therefore, research activities that explore the basis for interior design are urgently required to support the development of this specialized field with a comprehensive perspective. Accordingly, the Journal of the Korean Institute of Interior Design covers (but is not limited to) the following academic fields encompassing space, art, and technology related to interior design
- Architectural criticism
- Interior design and research
- History and theory of interior design
- Interior design education
- Environment behavior
