FIU Interior Design Symposium 2013
Interior Design Emerging: Fostering Identity, Diversity and Connectivity
April 29, 2013 in Miami Beach
The goal of this annual symposium is to explore important facets of the discipline of Interior Design (ID) by bringing together scholars and practitioners to advocate for professional identity, support cultural diversity through design, encourage global connectivity and foster interdisciplinary exchanges.
The symposium investigates a contemporary issue significant to the field of ID. The intention is to explore research and theory that comes other disciplines to help advance the profession of ID. Our goal is to imagine a world with responsible, sustainable and inclusive built environments and take decisive actions to begin creating such a future. Thus, we will aim to: 1) connect researchers across divergent and dispersed fields, 2) provide a platform to collaborate and to define a common set of interests and research questions, and 3) establish a new direction for ID research, scholarship and practice.
