Interiors in the Land of the Great Outdoors
[Conference Paper. Written for 'IDEA (Interior Design Educators of Australasia) Inside-Out,' delivered at Domain House, Melbourne, April 25-27, 2005]
ABSTRACT: In the context of an expanding economy around the so-called creative industries, many cities have been searching for theoretical models to guide urban development. Theoretical models from early post-modernists are being regularly re-examined, in part, because of their relevance to models for the contemporary city. This paper investigates situationist theory, not as a model for simple application, but as a lens through which to explore alternative pockets of culture for similar models. Using the situationist lens to observe culture in the Land of the Great Outdoors, this paper exposes the paradox of outdoor culture as an urban model.
