Domestic Interiors - 2/5 - Architecture and Education Series organised by Mark Cousins
Date: Monday 23 January 2012
Venue: Lecture Hall
While it might be assumed that architecture and the domestic interior enjoy a natural relation defined through housing and enclosure, the lecture will argue that the interior emerged historically at the moment when architecture became modern. It will chart the sometimes uneasy relation between architecture and the interior, and point to key theoretical problems that have emerged through this relation.
Charles Rice is Professor of Architectural History and Theory, and Head of the School of Art and Design History at Kingston University in London, where he is a senior researcher in Kingston’s Modern Interiors Research Centre. He is author of The Emergence of the Interior: Architecture, Modernity, Domesticity (Routledge, 2007), and is editor of The Journal of Architecture (Routledge/RIBA).
