This subject was previously known as Interior Architecture Extreme, Complex and Bizarre Studio.
Continuing the theme of 'enclosure', this subject aims to stretch and synthesise the students' understanding and application of design methodology towards speculating on and imagining new visions for the future by focusing on extreme, complex and bizarre environments, for example, prisons, space travel or the underground bunker. Philosophical and theoretical readings are explored as other ways of thinking and seeing the world. Similarly, possibilities for geographic, built and spatial typologies and material realities are investigated.
