The Abstract 

4th Year Interior Architecture Studio (Major Project), Monash University 2015 Supervision: Matthew Bird & 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.
