Interiors Buildings Cities


The Chair of Interiors Buildings Cities explores territories that ranges from the extended interior to the intimate city. Walter Benjamin described the city as ‘the interior of the collective’ establishing it as a deep and intricate space of threshold, which enfolds both the intimacies of individual experience and the mediating territories of collective public life.

Working from critical understandings of existing situations, between inside and outside, our students materialise architecture across these scales. Creating places that embody the concerns of contemporary society and culture in a direct, immediate and inclusive manner, making them both perceivable and available to the citizen.

MSc1 The House in the City
MSc2 Cast Courts
