MDES INTERIOR DESIGN

Reid Building, 39 students

We are delighted to celebrate another year of fantastic work from Interior Design MDes students. They are actively engaging with the social and political aspects of everyday life using their spatial education as a navigational device. Their critical approaches emphasise the production of space with the use of physical and digital tools. Venturing beyond mainstream notions of the discipline, they imagine types of future human inhabitation and suggest how spaces might be. Their studies, together with their personal stories, have furnished them with the greatest opportunity to discuss, debate and  explore innovative approaches to the making of interiors, and thereby reframing our relationship with space.

These and other questions were floated between participants, their answers may be found embedded in the work you will discover here.

In order to conform to my concept of expanding space with constantly changing size and space function, I divided the movement of the core area of the interior into rotation and sliding to find the possibility of space change.

It's evident that people are progressively drifting away from the natural rhythms. As humanity continues to exploit the environment without restraint, certain natural calamities have become unavoidable. Despite some efforts to promote environmental awareness, the voice conveying such consciousness remains faint. The truth is, the majority of people turn a blind eye to environmental conservation and resource preservation. On one hand, they perceive their individual efforts as too feeble to achieve significant outcomes. On the other hand, they consider the depletion of planetary resources a distant issue, given that their lifespans are destined not to extend into that period. To prevent such a scenario, I believe it's essential to elevate public awareness regarding environmental issues, as well as the pressing need for responsible lifestyles and consumption habits. In response to this challenge, I have undertaken theoretical research on the matter.

In the original description, the narrator speaks of a scene in the living room when the family has just moved in and everything is full of anticipation and excitement, so in the model I have also used bright, warm colours to create a very welcoming and exciting character of the space

The first means used by human to communicate are sounds and words alongside posture. Movement can be used as an inspiring way to perceive It was developed for the purpose of sensing into the systems we are embedded within to gain insight and wisdom, to close the feedback loop between reality and its invisible source of awareness and thought. This invisible source of thought and awareness can only be accessed and understood in the present moment.

The motivation for my project comes from some old photos of mine. These photos all depict a place - the first rice noodle restaurant my father opened in our hometown. It was just like any other noodle shop in the city at that time, nothing particularly special about it. However, one year, my parents went to the provincial capital city to learn experience and they found luxury hotels all decorate for Christmas. In our remote mountainous hometown, very few people knew what Christmas was. So, during the Christmas season, everyone gathered with curiosity at the restaurant to experience the festive atmosphere with friends and family. Year after year, it accompanied generations of people as they grew up. When mentioning the concept of Christmas, the first thing that comes to people's minds is not the birth of Jesus but going to this restaurant to have a meal. And this concept is known only to the locals. In other cities, people wouldn't associate Christmas with the same idea and definition. This event, this place, is like a symbol that brings the people of this street and this city together.
