Practice : Fall 2008
Chairs, Deans, Heads of Programs, and Professors representing the schools of Architecture, Interior Architecture, and Interior Design of fourteen Colleges and Universi- ties met at the University of Cincinnati on May th and th for the initial discussions to de ne the collaborative e ort Inside: Out. e conference was Co-Chaired by Michaele Pride, Director of the School of Architecture and Interior Design at the University of Cincinnati, and President Ted Landsmark of the Boston Architectural College. " e sessions are an extremely important opening of dialogue among architecture and interior design educators," said President Landsmark. "Given the changes that are occurring within and the increased need for collaboration across all of the design professions, educators have needed to signi cantly increase discussions as to how we can better work together." Initial discussion focused upon disciplinary overlap and was stimulated by an examination of curriculum, following a presenta- tion of the matrix of Bachelor of Science and Interior Design course overlap by University of Cincin- nati Professor Hank Hidebrandt, past recipient of the IIDA Educator of the Year Award. John Weigand IDEC, Director of Architecture and Interior Design, Miami University and a member of the Board of CIDA (Council for Interior Design Accreditation) centered discussion around the intersection of the disciplines of Architecture, Interior Design and Interior Architecture with attention to the overlap of the knowledge bases of each distinct profession, and a reminder that Interior Design is the newer, dramatically evolving profession. e BAC Heads of Schools Dave Harrison ASID, IIDA, IDEC and Je Stein AIA co-presented the BAC's mapped curricula that included the integration of the four disciplines. Historic context was provided to explain the evolution of a fully concurrent curriculum, with further explanation of recent evolution of cross-disciplinary col- laboration, while demonstrating that the BAC adds landscape archi- tecture studies and design studies to the disciplines under discussion. "Our job is to see the future, and then align BAC education in a way that will allow our students to live and work responsibly in the future," said Stein. "By organizing this Inside: Out conference and co-hosting it with the University of Cincinnati's school of DA AP, President Landsmark is helping us down that path."
