Florida State University Scholar Honored by the American Society of Interior Designers

Jill Pable, professor and chair of the department of interior architecture and design at Florida State University, has received the 2021 Design Luminary Award from the American Society of Interior Designers. The award recognizes Professor Pable’s research on designing healthy spaces that serve homeless people, such as shelters, permanent supportive and transitional housing types.

Dr. Pable’s mission is to elevate awareness of the potential contribution that thoughtful, research-informed design can bring to people experiencing trauma, especially those who lack permanent housing.“It is a distinct honor to be recognized by the American Society of Interior Designers with this award, and perhaps a testament to the critical importance of design for all persons that my nonprofit organization – Design Resources for Homelessness – seeks to support,” Professor Pable said. “The fullest mission of designed environments is fulfilled when places help everyone, not just those with economic means, to be their best selves.”

Dr. Pable joined the faculty at Florida State University in 2005 and was promoted to full professor in 2014. She is the co-author of Sketching Interiors at the Speed of Thought (Fairchild Books, 2004).

Professor Pable is a graduate of Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina, where she majored in housing and interiors as well as biology. She holds a master of fine arts degree in interior design from Florida State University and a Ph.D. in secondary education with an emphasis on instruction technology in architecture from the University of South Florida.
