Finding a space for the practice of interior design
Keywords:Interior design, Identity, Territory
Despite recent intensity in discourse surrounding the definition and territory of interior design as a practice and a field of study in professional and academic forums around the world, little consideration has been given to the process and outcomes of contemporary interior design practice, and how analysis of it may (or may not) contribute to interior design’s persistent discussions of contested definition of identity and territory. This paper seeks to find a position within the current literature that allows justifiable discussion of contemporary interior design practice methodologies and projects. Using examples of awarded projects from Australia’s annual peer judged interior design awards program, analysis of contemporary interior design practice is positioned within the context of the main themes of this continuing debate.
