Academics, research students and practitioners are invited to submit design research papers and critical project works that engage with interior design/interior architecture theory and practice for the IDEA JOURNAL 2010.
Deadline for registration of interest: 7 June 2010.
The IDEA JOURNAL 2010 provocation Interior Ecologies: exposing the evolutionary interior seeks to elicit emergent interior debates on contemporary spatial, material and performative practices. Can a critical ecological approach to practice and discourse in interiors enable expanded locales for research and experiment across disciplinary and theoretical boundaries? Normative concepts concerned with the designed habitat, or discursive debates around the interfaces of interior and exterior conditions, may fall short in provoking interior thinking to engage through ecologies of practice that contribute to advancing environments, technologies and cultures. Interior Ecologies requests expressions of interest regarding theoretical research, design practice and educational accounts that promote the concept of evolutionary interiors. Examinations of historical, contemporary and relational perspectives for constructed situations and/or events are welcome.
