Date: 08 November 2018
The Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design is to host ‘Inside the City’ a two-day international conference which brings together leading interior design educators, practitioners and researchers from the across the world to pursue and discuss ideas about the relationship between the city and the design of the interior.
The event, which will take place at The Cass in Aldgate, will run on 22 and 23 November.
Andy Stone, Head of the Cass, said: “The ambition in proposing the theme and organising the event was to bring some of the world’s most engaged educators and influential designers to explore the evolving and increasingly interior experience of the city. Our location, at the heart of a city, is representative of the shifting, challenging, enriched, antagonistic context for Interior design practice.”
Keynote speakers include Marcus Engman, until earlier this month Head of Design at IKEA; Sevil Peach, Interior Architect and recipient of the Lifetime achievement award from Frame magazine in 2018; and writer and educator Professor Lois Weinthal of Ryerson Universty, Toronto.
“We’re delighted to host the conference. It will enable our students to be exposed to a wealth of ideas and thinking and to enrich the wider research environment of The Cass.”
