The Abstract, Monash University Australia
Designed by Jasmine Rachim, Ellen Hodson, Emma Loo, Eliza Monti & Amanda Blazey - Final Year Interior Architecture Studio (Major Project), Monash University.
Supervision: Matthew Bird (Studiobird) & Gene Bawden
The Abstract designed by Monash University Interior graduates is an ambitious exhibition project exploring unorthodox spatial realms of reading rooms. The exhibition reinvents the tradition of a reading room environment within a gallery context to promote prestigious academic journals with the aim to engage early career academics to the realties and benefits of publishing. The exhibition challenges ideas around non-traditional research and what it means to be a researcher in creative practice today. Incorporating typography, performance, fashion and choreography The Abstract provokes discussion around interdisciplinary modes of interior architecture practice.
