The MIARD’18 GRADUATION exhibition is a gathering of ideas, methods and scenarios. Together, the projects form an open-ended collection that embodies the numerous ways these designers research, develop and position their practice. The exhibition is expressive of the complexity, variety and potential of a contemporary “interior” practitioner.

There’s an inference in the collection of research projects, The Archive as a Productive Space…, when testimonies begin to take shape, such as “the productive archive offers an open framework, which actively transforms itself and therefore allows for the constant production of new and surprising relationships” (Miessen, Chateigné 2016). The collection is a “fluid” gathering, a decentralised, open framework that produces ruptures, inclusiveness and potential within standards – it is directly reflective of the elastic nature of the graduation projects this year.

Alumna Merle Flügge, winner of the 2017 WdKA Research Prize and the MIARD Alumni Research Award will present her current research with the launch of her design studio SupertoysSupertoys.

Work shown in this exhibition stands in dialogue with the nature of drawing as presented in the exhibition ‘Drawing Ambience, Alvin Boyarsky and the Architectural Association.’ Students from the Piet Zwart Institute, Master Interior Architecture: Research + Design program reconsider drawing as a form of spatial inquiry across time, context, and technique.

Each drawing looks to explore a space that denotes tension between visible and invisible, interior and landscape, reality and fiction. Designers have been searching for various unorthodox representations of (interior)space. Drawings behave like instruments with which to depict ambient attributes.

Designers Claudia Cañizares, Marta Latorre Rubio, Theodora Kalamatianou, Francesco Mottola, Livia Stacchini, Szu-Yi Wang
