60 A Personal (Pro)position:
Finding a Place in Design
Keywords:Regional design identity, Interior architecture studio pedagogy
The paper will describe an Interior Architecture studio entitled ‘South’ that aimed to develop students’ idiosyncratic design positions. The intention was to establish an individual and regional theoretical approach to underpin and influence a design methodology. This was achieved through a series of personalised design projects which focussed students’ design response to the cultural, social and economic possibilities that characterise their home- state of South Australia. The paper will discuss how the unique projects responded to ethical, political, environmental, cultural and social considerations of occupation and place and resisted stylistic design responses that are often the result of globalisation.
