Geneva, Spring 2023

Developed as part of the Master of Arts in Interior Architecture (MAIA) program at HEAD – Genève, this series of MA theses explores the theme of interior ecologies, investigating the interconnections between interior spaces, environments, and media through successive decentralizations: from the historical human-built totalitarianism that has existed for centuries (inclusivity) to the relationship with non-humans (ecology), and finally, the connection to machines and virtual environments (technology).

The theses advocate for a vision in which the human and the non-human are articulated in new parliamentary assemblies, mastering the professional aspects of the project and studying the public, private, and commercial spheres of contemporary interiors. They address responses to current environmental and societal challenges (carbon footprint, circular economy) and the implications of new ecological paradigms (non-human, post-human) for interior architecture as a discipline, encompassing all its professional competencies: space design, product design, research, curatorial, and editorial practices.
