Two architecture and design luminaries engage in a wide-ranging discussion considering philosophies of the interior with reference to Thomas Demand’s The Dailies, Kaldor Public Art Project 25.

Sylvia Lavin is an internationally known critic, historian and theorist whose work explores the limits of architecture across a wide spectrum of historical periods. Lavin is the Director of the Critical Studies and M.A./Ph.D. programs in the Department of Architecture and Urban Design at UCLA and the Director of Hi-C, a collaborative design and research group that supports the critical engagement with experimental architecture in the public realm. Ms. Lavin is the recipient of a 2011 Arts and Letters Award in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Her most recent book, Kissing Architecture, was published by Princeton University Press in 2011 and she is currently curating All That is Loose Will Land, a large-scale exhibition focusing on the intersections between art and architecture in Los Angeles during the 1970s.

Charles Rice is Professor of Architectural History and Theory and Head of the School of Art and Design History at Kingston University London. His research considers questions of the interior across the arts. He is author of The Emergence of the Interior: Architecture, Modernity, Domesticity (Routledge, 2007), and is editor of The Journal of Architecture (Routledge/RIBA). Rice has lectured and taught at numerous universities and institutions internationally, and is currently a Visiting Professor in the School of Architecture at the University of Technology Sydney, where he taught from 2005-2010.
