Miard Graduation Show 2014: Fabrication Of Atmosphere

Talks followed by Exhibition Opening Reception

The Piet Zwart Institute is pleased to announce this year’s graduation exhibition, FABRICATION OF ATMOSPHERE, presenting projects by international designers from the Master of Interior Architecture & Retail Design [MIARD] programme.

MIARD’s graduation show focuses on the FABRICATION OF ATMOSPHERE. The works presented examine the potential of the spatial character of atmosphere and refer to the fabrication of atmosphere through components of the interior. How can we inquire and reveal the conditions and interferences of atmosphere? And how can we, according to Silvia Benedeto "understand interior space through an atmospheric lens" [1]? If we consider atmosphere a strategic tool to re-structure spatial thinking and formulations through its immaterial features and transient qualities, [2] what then, are the possibilities and limits of fabricating atmospheres in regard to interior architecture?
