note = "Interior spaces play a huge part in our everyday experiences. They help us rest, they provide facilities for cleaning us, they help transport us from one place to another in safety and comfort, and they help us relax. The designed interiors of university libraries, restaurants, factories, cafes, airplanes, trains, automobiles, and nightclubs therefore significantly contribute to making us all feel warmer, better, brighter, faster and happier. Interiors Education Futures contains 16 intriguing and stimulating papers on the subject of interior design / architecture education. The collection of papers contained within this edited book deal with a wide range of interior design education-related subjects including storytelling, practice-led design projects, post-optimal design, the phenomenology of retail design spaces, physical computing technologies in interior architecture, and design for branded environments, amongst others. The book includes a set of rich and varied debates surrounding the future of interior design education, practice and research that were held during the inaugural Interior Educators Conference at the School of Design, Northumbria University in March 2011. As such this book will form the basis of future developments in interior education, practice and research in the years ahead.",

N2 - Domestechtopias explores various utopian and aspirational themes that exist between domestic dwelling and ‘smart’ technologies that co-habit within that interior. We discusses new ways for IE, Interior Educators, to reengage with the domestic and argue that smart ‘tech’ is, in effect, homeless kit until ‘housed’ by the interior. Domestechtopias describes a portmanteau morphing of the terms domestic > technology > utopia and explores how dwelling has changed to accommodate physical, temporal, spatial and now virtual experiences. Domestechtopias is now the hub to new social encounters now redefining society but far from being a sanctuary from society, new behaviours enacted through new technology, are transforming society and altering the interiority of domestic space. The strictly demarcated boundary between public/private and home/work suggests an increasingly porous place. This shift suggests a reconfiguration of our digital, familial and spatial maps into new interior experiences but also new opportunities to revisit the domestic - what Castell’s described as spaces-of-flow. Whilst anxieties and antagonism may exist between those who design interiors and those who decorate them, we can bypass these restrictive historical, decorative or architectural lenes. The domestic is a neglected territory and our spiritual origin, however, much of the recent research into digital interventions around the domestic interior seem driven, not by interiors but by interdisciplinary institutions, companies and research groups. Domestechtopias invites the IE community to contribute to wider disciplinary discussion on the impact interactive experiences and responsive environments are having in transforming interiors’ future. This suggests obvious problems; 1) that the domestic, whilst symbolizing interiors spiritual home, remains a relatively neglected territory in mainstream Interior education, 2) interiors might benefit from looking through other conceptual and research lenses, other than architecture, to identify new interior directions, and 3) collaboration, not segregation, will drive and transform interior futures.
