Professor Mark Taylor’s upcoming publication of Flow: Interior, Landscape and Architecture in the Era of Liquid Modernity looks to explore in-depth the interconnectedness of the interior and exterior on both a literal and metaphorical level. The Bloomsbury collaboration approaches the flow of design as a permeable and fluid relationship, compiling ideas from the most influential research and practice-based professionals from around the world in an effort to outline a number of key thematic areas, including “Engaging nature,” “Mobility,” “Continuity” and “Frames.”
The volume presents a range of innovative perspectives that reposition the existing understanding of the interior and exterior as a singular environment that sits beyond the control of the buildings that once defined them. Professor Taylor’s expertise and innovative approach to architectural design have ensured that Flow resonates as an important literary item, with outstanding support from a range of knowledgeable colleagues including Prof Penny Sparke, Ms Patricia Brown, Dr Patricia Lara-Betancourt and Prof Gini Lee.
