Re- Form: Interior Educators 2022. A really cool exhibition in the heat!

Once again our BA Interior Architecture students built great exhibition at the annual show for Interior Education courses. This years Interior Educators show took place in the middle of the heatwave at the Bargehouse in London which is in the prestigious Oxo Tower on the River Thames. Teaching staff, technicians and students worked together around the clock in blistering temperatures to build a really ‘cool’ exhibition space to showcase some fantastic work. 
As usual Brighton students picked up awards – Hannah Puttick Level 5 was the winner for Social Justice and Imani Qamer was shortlisted for Craft and Making Imani Qamar L4 SHORTLISTED for Craft and Making:
Interior Educators (IE) ( formerly known as Free Range) is the national subject association which represents well-established Interior Design, Interior Architecture and Spatial Design degree programmes across the UK and Ireland. Founded in 2006, IE represents more than 50 institutional members, teaching students to design for people, as well as to use design as a problem-solving tool.
Cultivating good design to make for a better world sits at the heart of what IE is and does. This attitude underpins the nature of the degree programmes IE represents. It also provides the framework for its student awards system.
Last year IE adopted the theme “re-define” for the summer show and awards system; this year, building on this theme, the idea of “re-form” was explored. Looking at how design can help to form and reform society through addressing shared problems head on; exploring form itself, and how form (shape, appearance, practice, convention) can be deployed to offer answers to the difficult questions and challenges we all face.
