The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation offers a PhD position within the topic "Interior Studies"

The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation (KADK), Institute of Architecture and Design (IBD) offers a PhD position within the topic of ”Interior Studies”.

Part of the PhD project research will be conducted at the Institute of Architecture and Design in the field of Architecture and Interior and will address the ongoing transformation of interiors towards a higher degree of spatial and social polyvalence.

The project will be affiliated with two of the institute's research projects: “Spaces of Danish Welfare”, which is headed by Professor with Special Responsibilities Kirsten Marie Raahauge, and “Centre for Privacy Studies”, which at KADK is headed by Professor Peter Thule Kristensen in collaboration with the University of Copenhagen (see: https://kadk.dk/en/institute/architecture-and-design, https://teol.ku.dk/privacy/).

The PhD project takes its point of departure in the issues mentioned in the following section and can involve architectural, anthropological and research-by-design based approaches.

The PhD project should be anchored in case studies; it can focus on various cases, such as the hospital, the museum, the dormitory, the workplace, the educational institution, the home etc.

The fulltime position will start 1st January 2020, or as soon as possible thereafter.



Background

Contemporary interiors seem to be undergoing transformation towards a higher degree of spatial and social hybridisation and polyvalence. Formerly juxtaposed zones (such as public, private, intimate, welfare-oriented or collective zones) tend to become blended into each other, whereby the meaning, use, design and aesthetics of these merged spatial entities are transformed.

The drivers behind this transformation might be manifold, and among others, one could point to the following: Due to the global increase in population, many communities need to use the same entity more intensively, while other places experience depopulation. Ambitions about a more sustainable built environment challenge conventional interior design practises, which earn a living by rapid changes of the spatial organisation of many interiors. The development of new generic and smart technologies is facing a “sensual turn” within architecture, offering “authentic” bodily sensations and site-specific narratives. The use of recycling lends itself to new notions of history, setting a scene where the recycled objects become part of a new context that merges disparate historical epochs in new ways.

In this context, the interior is interesting as a site where values, forms of practice, cultural ideas and spatial organisation are transformed, mirroring major transformations in contemporary society, while at the same time adding to these changes. Compared to prevailing notions of space, the interior seems to be highly contested and relevant, since it includes discussions about the interface between the social life taking place in the architecture, between design artefacts and spaces, and between various more or less private, public, intimate, welfare-oriented or collective zones. The interior cannot be conceived of through a simple opposition to the exterior; it is rather to be explored as a destabilised and heterogeneous construction with complex relationships with exteriors.

The position is connected to the Institute of Architecture and Design, and the PhD fellow will be enrolled at KADK’s PhD school.



Institute of Architecture and Design (IBD)

Institute of Architecture and Design is a cross-disciplinary teaching and research environment including both architecture and design students. With a point of departure in the Danish tradition for working with design in a spatial and architectural context, it is the ambition of the institute to develop new agendas concerning business areas and fields of competences for architects and designers. Sustainability and social conscience are central within the teaching and research at the institute.

The institute consists of two Bachelor’s programmes and four Master’s programmes constituting the framework around teaching and research including designers and architects as well as scholars from the humanities. The teaching and the research focus on architecture, entrepreneurship, spatial and interior design, furniture design, textile design and fashion design. In addition, the institute runs a department for ceramics and glass at Bornholm (a professional Bachelor’s programme),and the IT teaching facilities of the School of Architecture.

Qualification requirements

The PhD is fixed as three years of full-time study. On the application date, the applicant must have achieved a Master's degree (120 ECTS credits or corresponding) within architecture, design or another related area, e.g. anthropology, cultural studies or art history.

Alternatively, the applicant must be able to document competences on a par with a Master's degree through extensive education (4-5 years) as well as knowledge, qualifications, competences and business-related experience within architecture.



Terms of employment

Enrolment will take place with a view to acquiring the PhD degree and entails salaried employment as a PhD fellow for three years as per the agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations, AC, minutes about PhD fellowships (Appendix 5).

The salary consists of a seniority-based basic salary and a non-pensionable supplement.

The legal basis for the PhD programme and the awarding of the PhD degree at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation (KADK) is primarily found in the Ministerial Order on the Act on Institutions of Higher Artistic Education, cf. Consolidation Act no. 1673 of 11 December 2013, and in the Ministry of Higher Education and Science's PhD Order no. 1039 of 29 August 2013.
