This class will investigate the premise that Interiors and Interior Design, are connected to and need to be conversant with, current world-shaping social, political, economic, and cultural forces and events. We will use the study of Interiors from the late 20th century to the present time, to address questions about a range of issues that concern designers today, such as memory and preservation, new technologies, globalization, and “the everyday” in both western and non-western contexts. We will explore how processes of urbanization, currently prevalent throughout the globe, are influencing the development of the interior. We will work toward developing a critical approach to Interior Design particularly in respect to issues of design as social practice and to sustainable design.
