About the Interior Architecture Programme
The programme explores the creative adaptation, repurposing, remodelling, rebranding, restyling and refitting of existing buildings. The Architecture subject area in LSA has developed an expertise in the creative adaptation of existing buildings in past years with collaborations across Europe on the subject leading to a number Erasmus IP funded workshops and related publications collaborating with universities from Austria, Germany, Holland, Sweden, Hungary & Portugal. A broad educational experience is offered within which students can develop diverse rigorous and creative approaches to design issues that explore and test appropriate resolutions in relation to contemporary and anticipated contextual issues. Design projects form the backbone of the core teaching strategy. These projects are seen as primers to a divergent creative and critical thought process: they are characterised by individual interpretation and interest in the subject that encourage imaginative solutions through studio discursive forums. The design projects gradually become more complex and ambitious in their intentions and integrative in their nature. The city of Liverpool is used as a contextual laboratory to test concepts that have a local flavour with global implications. The aim is to develop graduate skills and knowledge such that students become autonomous thinkers who are capable of analysing, visualising and testing potential solutions to increasingly complex spatial and social issues.
About the Role
You are required to contribute to the academic work of the School of Art & Design. In particular, you will be expected to make an active contribution to the Interior Architecture programme and have extensive experience in design practice and / or research. You will also be expected to contribute to the academic life of the Faculty and University. This programme of study is thoughtfully balanced to address the creative and technical demands of the interior architecture design professional. Taught through a studio environment that is underpinned and informed by lectures and workshops, the over-arching ambition of the programme is to create graduates with artistic flair, who are technically skilled and grounded in the demands of the role of a design professional that specializes in building modification and interior design. The learning and teaching environment is progressively informed by research in pedagogy in the creative field. While teaching the curriculum, the programme also develops less tangible skills in students, such as communication, presentation and self-motivation. The programme aims to create independent thinkers, adept at resolving problems with creativity and originality.
Diversity in the School of Art and Design
LSA has many links with artistic and cultural institutions both nationally and locally, including RIBA, FACT (the Foundation of Arts and Creative Technologies) and the Liverpool Biennial and collaborates regularly on both live projects and exhibitions. We also have collaborative partners in Thailand, Vietnam and franchised programmes in Sri Lanka. LJMU is committed to achieving equality of opportunity. The school of art and design is currently under-represented with regards to staff from a Black, Asian, and other Minority Ethnic background and is actively promoting diversity in its workforce. We welcome applications from all eligible applicants. However, we would like to encourage applicants from the Black, Asian, and other Minority Ethnic communities who are currently under-represented within this area of work.
