Interior as Archive
3rd year Undergraduate Design Studio: Experimentation and Innovation
School of Interior Architecture, University of Tennessee, Knoxville
What are the stories hidden in interiors, and how can these stories be preserved and told to future generations? Can we "read" an interior like a history or a memoir? This studio investigated the idea of the interior as an archive of memory that changes and evolves over time. In the process we explored how the practices of everyday life shape our spaces with the goal of enhancing design practice through an understanding of the entanglements of things and people in their material, practical, and social contexts.
