Intypes

Intypes (Interior Archetypes Research and Teaching Project), is an online database providing a consistent... "typology of contemporary interior design practices". This free and well-designed website was launched in July 2009 at the NeoCon World's Trade Fair in Chicago. The Project, said to be "13 years in the making", has been worked on by Cornell University faculty and sixteen graduate students. The database has an advanced search form, and may also be accessed by intuitive illustrated A-Z indexes that are clearly linked from the front page. The website also has a full description of the project and project staff, and two founding partners - the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) and Interior Design magazine.
