‘Reflections on the Public Interior’ is an excursion and symposium organized by the Chair the Architecture of the Interior (TU Delft) and Fachgebiet Baukonstruktion und Entwerfen (Prof. Regine Leibinger, TU Berlin).

"The public interior are those interior spaces whose scale, complexity, positions and uses within the extended urban environment render them part of the public realm. The public interior is an important arena for the setting out of possibilities or values for the city itself: its values and its idea are reflected in the character and the architecture of its public interiors." The Architecture of the Interior, TU Delft

The symposium will take place on Wednesday 21 January. Both organizing chairs will present their academic positions concerning the public interior. Furthermore, we will open up the discussion to the architectural practice by inviting Jitse van de Berg (noAarchitecten, Brussels) and Thomas Schneider (Brandlhuber +, Berlin) who will give lectures on their work.

Speakers are:
Matthias Graf von Ballestrem, TU Berlin
Thomas Schneider, Brandlhuber +, Berlin
Mark Pimlott, TU Delft
Jitse van den Berg, noAarchitecten, Brussels

The excursion will take place the day before, on Tuesday 20 January. We will visit a range of buildings in Belgium that integrate different scales of and strategies for public interiors. Amongst them are Budafabriek Kortrijk (51N4E), Vlasmuseum en stadhuis Menen (NoAarchitecten) and Market Hall Gent (Robbrecht en Daem). The excursion will be by bus and will depart from Delft at 8:30.
