From greenhouses to botanic facilities and from data centres to automated interiors, never before in history has architecture produced so many interiors for the non-human, challenging disciplinary notions on tectonics, light, comfort and entire regulatory frameworks
Once designed for and with the human, interior spaces have instead become complex materialisations where the politics of contemporary ecologies are played out. Ultimately, who are they for?
Titled Interior Ecologies, the Master of Arts in Interior Architecture (MAIA) at HEAD – Genève is a two-year graduate programme that explores the entanglements between interior spaces, environments and media
MAIA addresses both the responses to contemporary environmental and societal challenges, and the implications of new ecological paradigms for interior architecture in all its dimensions, i.e. space design, product design, new media, research and curatorial practices
