Symposium of Interior Architecture and Spatial Use in Lucerne, Switzerland and in Tallinn, Estonia, June 7–8.

An old car garage becomes a restaurant A former indoor swimming pool, currently not in use anymore, is beeing transformed into a revitalized culture centre. What are the human needs today and how it influences the re-purposing process? The SISU symposion focusses on re­-use of interior space and the role of community. The symposium will shed light on the question, how interior architecture is able to create an identity for a naked space, while ‘re-dressing’ it and how this can contribute added value for the district. How can we investigate the space inside the buildings of past?
