Spatial culture, learning and design:
shifting ecologies of practice
Keywords:Intervention, Interior, Ecology, Spatial design
Design interventions into environments reshape the ecologies of practice that the environment has participated in, housed or enabled. This paper draws upon research into the complex ecologies of next-generation learning practices and the respondent interior design practices that facilitate and sustain the evolution of those ecologies. The role of the interior designer is expanded to include not only the design of objects, communications and their contexts but also the design of processes through which these may be conceived and understood. Through cross-disciplinary methods and theories the design of an inclusive and responsive process highlights the ecological nature of interior design interventions.
