The content of the new Master Interior Architecture INSIDE is focused on an annual social theme and a set of problems of residents or users of interior architecture. Sustainable, humane solutions for problems are developed and presented through research, conceptualisation and spatial design. Every year will be related to a new theme, relating to contemporary topics from the real world. During the year 2011 – 2012 the central theme of the programme is ‘in situ’.
Contemporary interiors increasingly depend on a complex of connecting flows. The researchgroup ‘inside flows’ investigates the specifications and behaviour of these flows to support the development of sustainable designmethods. From at least 13 different flowtypes varying from energy, water and food to knowledge, money and users, practical knowledge will be developed for application in design and research. Next to their content, as well the means to represent flow-systems will be subject of research. Conclusively the research group supports the flow of knowledge within the Master course, providing a knowledgebase/encyclopedia and connecting different student projects by giving access to the accumulating knowledge from the perspective of flows.For more information check insideflows.org.
