At a time where boundaries within society, culture and technology are continually challenged and redefined; even the commonly understood binary oppositions within areas such as gender, age and digitality (Negroponte, 1995) are becoming less visible, measurable and socially accepted. In this new realm where even physical reality is encroached upon by the digital, are the tangible and perceived distinctions between interior and architecture also becoming extinct? An emergence of more flexible and transitional space appears to not only blur the boundaries of inside and outside, interior and architecture, but also the previous distinctions of function. Space is no longer solely intimated by visual cue, materiality or the physicality of walls and interior objects. Instead we see increased “function neutrality” within buildings, with rising opportunity for user interpretation and “take-over”. This renewed focus on the user can be seen to enrich our built environment, as we embrace a new equality of the interior and relish its new freedom and voice.
