2015 Interior Design Emerging Symposium with Karim Rashid on April 10th!


On April 10th, FIU and its Interior Architecture Department will host the 2015 Interior Design Emerging Symposium at the College of Architecture + The Arts | Miami Beach Urban Studios.

Blurred Lines, the 2015 Interior Design Emerging Symposium, will gather various representatives of interior design and architecture to advocate for professional identity, support cultural diversity through design, encourage global connectivity, and foster interdisciplinary exchanges. The 2015 symposium theme, Blurred Lines, refers to those narrow and vacillating borders between the designs of interior spaces and the objects, forms, and technologies that interact in and out of those spaces. Blurred Lines will investigate the ever-evolving role of the Interior Architect / Interior Designer as an individual that creatively touches every part of the built landscape. The keynote speaker for the symposium will be Interior Architect and Industrial Designer Karim Rashid. (Source: 2015 Interior Design Emerging Symposium)

The bi-annual symposium, currently in its second year, is under the direction of Sarah Boehm, Assistant Professor in the FIU Interior Architecture Department, who coordinates the amazing meeting of practitioners, scholars, and students.

Symposium guests will be exposed to an interdisciplinary approach to design when participants share and discuss ideas and research findings, an experience that will allow them to learn about “new possibilities and reinvented spaces and objects that blur the lines of convention and shape an unbounded future.”
