The Public Interior: the design of inclusive, durable public interiors from an urban and interior perspective.

Promotors: Els De Vos, Maarten Van Acker

This research studies the role of the public interior in forming a sense of community within the city. Whereas public interiors are mainly studied isolated from their surroundings, this project considers public interiors as part of an integrated network with the traditional public space. The goal is to develop a mapping method, which combines the urban and interior perspective and addresses both the physical and social dimensions of public space as two integrated layers.
