EXAMPLES OF INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE

Interior of architect, Frank


Lloyd Wright's Robie House
(1911). In 1956, The
Architectural Record selected
the Robie House as "one of the
seven most notable residences
ever built in America.

Window was designed by


architect, Frank Lloyd Wright for
the Robie House.

Real Estate Opportunities were granted to


redevelop the Battersea Power Station of
England in November 2010

The Battersea Power Station


of England has become an
iconic structure through
adaptive reuse and has been
featured in many forms of
culture during its more than
seventy-year long history.

One of the most successful residential reuse


projects was Gasometer City, in Vienna
Austria. Four immense disused gasometers
were successfully revamped in the late 90s
and have since become famous in the world of
adaptive reuse.

EXAMPLES OF INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE

The World Food Prize Hall of Laureates, formerly


the Des Moines Public Library on the western bank
of the Des Moines River in downtown Des Moines,
Iowa.
This unique redevelopment has since
become a sought after place to live
with a close-knit inner community,
and is looked upon as a very
successful example of adaptive reuse.

Evolutions in Interior Architecture


Adaptive Reuse
The interior architect must therefore be sensitive not only to the place of the building in
its physical and socio-political context.
Each alteration the technical and technological expertise of the era will determine the
extent to which the building is modified in its building life cycle.
There are many different degrees of alteration
1.a minor one to enable the building to conform to new legal codes is likely to prolong
the first (or indeed later)
2.iteration of interior space,
3. major alteration, such as the retention of only the facade, is to all intents and purposes a
new building.
4.All possibilities within and between the two extremes are the domain of the interior
architect.
If the practice of architecture is concerned with the art and science of new building, then
the practice of interior architecture is concerned with the alteration of existing buildings
for new uses

EDUCATION OF INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE


Purpose
includes the study of historic architectural and design styles, building codes and safety,
preserving and restoring old buildings, drawing plans of original designs, and building
physical and virtual (computer-based) models.
Difference with Interior Design:
has a lot in common with interior design and decorating; however, it typically focuses
on architecture and construction.
Objectives:
design comfortable, safe, and useful indoor spaces, from downtown penthouses to high
school classrooms
It is much more than artistic concerns, such as choosing which style of furnishings
works well in an open, loft-like apartment. Study will also include information on
technical issues, such as seismic retrofitting (making old buildings safe from
earthquakes)

Education of Interior Architecture


Degree Programs
Interior Architecture stands at the intersection of architecture, design of the built
environment, and conservation.
Interior architecture programs address the design issues intrinsic to the re-use and
transformation of existing structures through both an innovative and progressive
approach.
National Center for Education Statistics states that the definition of a degree program in
interior architecture is:
"A program that prepares individuals to apply architectural principles in the design of
structural interiors for living, recreational, and business purposes and to function as
professional interior architects instruction in architecture, occupational and
safety standards, structural systems design, heating and cooling systems design, interior
design, specific end-use applications, and professional responsibilities and standards.

Education of Interior Architecture


Interior architecture is simply the design of the interior of a building or structure.
Where as interior design deals with how pretty it is and architecture being the design of
the overall structure and the exterior, a logical conclusion would be the structural design
of the interior walls and/or style.
"Interior Architecture bridges the practices of interior design and architecture so that
professionals working in the field have a structural and load bearing education with an
emphasis on interior spaces. The field is similar to architecture in that it deals with
structures and load bearing walls. It is similar to interior design in that it focuses on
interior spaces.
