For BOOKINGS and further information please visit:

 ‘FLOW: a conference in two parts’ will address issues of the complex relationships between interiors and landscape, which have become increasingly relevant to the understanding of the modern interior. The conference recognises the complex relationship that exists between ‘interior’ and ‘exterior’ environments through a consideration of transitional, permeable and ambiguous spaces.
