Architecture’s interior matters in new ways today. The question of the interior challenges architecture's assumed boundaries such as the conventional dichotomies of the inside and outside of our buildings and discipline. The modernist platitude of inside/outside constrains a building’s thermodynamic, spatial, material, ecological, and formal effects. It also raises many topics that the discipline has yet to fully address topics—from physiology to the metabolism of urbanization to the interior of its representational tools. Likewise, the interior of matter stands to further challenge our assumptions about what literally constitutes architecture today.
This symposium explores a radically evolved epistemology through which to think interior and matter simultaneously, and to exercise their propensities in novels ways today.
