  • Lecture

Artist, designer and teacher Mark Pimlott will discuss the concept of the public interior at this lecture in Melbourne on 6 February.

In his book, The Public Interior as Idea and Project, Mark addresses the public interior in relation to the Garden, Palace, Ruin, Shed, Machine and Network, together with the observation that “public interiors have been designed to affect and condition our consciousness and our behaviour, our relations to others and to authority”.

This event is a collaboration between Interior Design, Architecture and Urban Design, RMIT University and the Melbourne School of Design, The University of Melbourne.
