Exercise 3: Abstract Spaces

I have analysed three different interior spaces and identified the skills that would have been used to design them. I have taken into account all the different specialisms that wouldn’t normally come under the umbrella of interior/spacial design, some skills overlap, others stand alone. I printed each image on to a piece of A4 paper. At the top of each page I have written a list of disciplines that could have been involved in the design. I then annotated each image with the specific skills I believe would have been used to create the interior space.

Fig. 1 – An image of a children’s hospital ward annotated with the design skills used to create the interior space
Fig. 2 – An image of Kew Gardens Palm House Interior annotated with the design skills used to create the interior space
Fig. 3 – An image of an Art and Craft Museum annotated with the design skills used to create the interior space

On reflection of the exercise, it seemed obvious at first that a few select skills would have been used to design all three spaces but after further consideration there are so many more elements to consider that need a skilled person to carry out that particular design. For example the Architect designs the space of the interior, the Interior Designer designs the gubbins of the interior space and most likely works with the Architect at the design stage and the tradespeople carry out their trades to bring all of the design together. A worthwhile exercise to remind myself that there are so many different skills needed to tie an interior space together in the best way possible and my research and annotations show how the three spaces merge covering several aspects of design.
