PR for Interior Designers Seminar
Practical full-day workshop organized by BDIA Bund Deutscher Innenarchitekten in Cologne, Germany
Small and medium-sized offices often find it difficult to actively pursue PR and to send information to journalists themselves. Frequently due to the uncertainty about the how, who and where. It helps with the order acquisition, if own projects in the media emerge. This day seminar shows that it’s possible to self-manage your own PR – if one is clever about it. Thanks to the Internet, Interior Architects / Designers can now draw attention to journalists through their press work. The seminar shows how this is done by means of illustrative practical examples and concrete exercises – so that at the end of the day, all participants are able to communicate, for example, a recently completed project via more channels than just their own office website. Seminar organized by BDIA Bund Deutscher Innenarchitekten and imparted by Barbara Hallmann and Dipl.-Ing. Eric Sturm.
Venue: Bene Showroom, Habsburgerring 2, Köln 50674 Germany
Time: 9:30 am-5:30 pm

SISU Symposium of Interior Architecture and Spatial Use
What becomes of space when it is stripped to its bareness
Former factory buildings are transformed into housing. An old garage becomes a restaurant with a cinema and an exhibition space. What becomes of space when it is stripped to its bareness, reduced to its naked core and opened up to new possibilities?
The SISU 2017 symposium will focus on re-use of interior space and community-driven redesign processes. The symposium will shed light on the question, how interior architecture is able to create an identity for naked space while ‘re-dressing’ it, and how this can contribute new value to the whole neighbourhood. What are our needs today and how does it influence the re-purposing process? How can we investigate the space inside the buildings of the past?
SISU will approach these questions across different disciplines including interior architects/designers, architects, filmmakers, academics and students from different cultures for the first time in parallel in Switzerland and in Estonia.
The Estonian Association of Interior Architects, the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Art / School of Engineering and Architecture, the Estonian Academy of Arts / Department of Interior Architecture and the Association of Swiss Interior Architects have the honour of inviting You to the 4th International Interior Architecture Symposium SISU “Naked Space” on 7th and 8th June 2017 at Neubad, Luzerne, Switzerland and/or simultaneously to a Mobile classroom created by the students of the Department of Interior Architecture of the EAA in Tallinn, Estonia.
Save the date and join us in this multicultural exploration of naked space!
The programme will soon be open at: http://sisu.esl.ee
