INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE IS a distinct contextbased practice concerned with the re-reading, reusing and altering of an architectural shell. Whether at the scale of the city, a building or a room, the ‘interiorist’ always starts with something and within something. Thus, Interior Architecture is a creative practice concerned with re-imagining the present to anticipate future need, rather than simply preserving the past. This year we focused on ideas for the future, anticipating scenarios for the home and at university. Of course, none of us predicted what was about to come. Project sites this year included the University of Westminster’s own 29 Marylebone Road, the Ragged School Museum, Spitalfields Market, the Horniman Museum, and Hansard Mews in Shepherds Bush.
