INSIDE is a two-year, internationally orientated program for interior architecture. A meeting place where students, designers, theoreticians, architects and critics gather to broaden and deepen their understanding of interior architecture and public space design.
INSIDE targets the real world: a world that is changing. Large-scale interiors, the relation between private and public space, sustainability, a greater demand for social cohesion and simultaneous processes of growth and decay are themes that call for a new perspective on interior architecture. The content of INSIDE concentrates on issues that face designers, clients, residents or users of interior architecture. Through observing, research, conceptualization and spatial design, sustainable, humane solutions for real world problems are developed and presented.
INSIDE aims to penetrate the interior of interior architecture and extending that to the range of public spaces that surround us. In an ever-growing awareness of a world in which multiple and contradictory visions are present, we will challenge and see the world from inside-out and become INSIDE architects.
The INSIDE programme consists of five parts. The heart features three studios — Inter, Urban and Space — that make up almost half of the total study load. In Studio Space this year Anne Holtrop took the unpredictable, chance and intuition as starting points and ended with the design of a house for the French writer Georges Perec that was scattered all over town.
Studio Urban by ZUS focuses on public space that becomes more and more private, large-scale and interior. What forces propel this development and what is the role of the designer within these dynamics?
Alongside these studios, students participate in a longer research trajectory entitled Inside Flows, headed by Jan Jongert. This year the research looks at flows of food and money in the contemporary urban landscape and interior architecture. In addition, the course includes a theoretical
