The Centre for Design Innovation is excited to announce the arrival of Professor Mark Taylor, who will look to lend his expertise to the upstart User Experience Design for Services program.
Professor Taylor joins the CDI with an impressive body of work, following six years as a Professor of Architecture at the University of Newcastle where he lent his expansive knowledge of the history and theory of architecture and industrial design to a number of university projects and publications focused on the effect the intricacy of interior design can have on culture.
Mark was a key driver of the ‘Flow: A Conference in Two Parts’ international symposium in 2011, which laid the foundations for his upcoming publication of Flow: Interior, Landscape and Architecture in the Era of Liquid Modernity, exploring the relationship between the interior, landscape and architecture and how this affects the relationships between phenomena. Set to be released on the 12th of July this year, Mark’s newest publication is a major point of excitement for the CDI. He also continues as an editorial board member for ‘Designing Interiors’ (Lund Humphries).
Professor Taylor has also heavily contributed to a wide array of publications centred around interior design, such as: Interior Design and Architecture: Critical and Primary Sources (Bloomsbury 2013), Designing the French Interior: The Modern Home and Mass Media (Bloomsbury 2015) and is currently finalizing A Cultural History of Interiors in the Medieval Age (Bloomsbury 2018).
Mark promises to prove a valuable addition to the User Experience Design for Services team, immediately commencing an ARC Discovery Grant upon his transfer to Swinburne, with a focus on “Place and Parametricism: Provocations for the Rethinking of Design” which will be explored between 2017-2020.
