Description

The challenge of researching and reusing interiors, often detached from their architectural exteriors, introduces a methodological complexity encompassing a range of questions that extend beyond the immediate subject.  

Questions about the dissociation between use (actual or past), the artistic meaning of the designer, and the design process are variables that need to be considered as part of the research itself. These variables impact directly the process of reuse, and conservation and must include intangible aspects such as the emotional attachment. The presence of intangible aspects further underscores the necessity to contemplate the information sources feeding the study and the pivotal role archives play in safeguarding interior spaces. In its essence, the study and repurposing of interiors encompass a harmonious fusion of objective investigation and subjective interpretation, where historical, cultural, and emotional dimensions coalesce.
