Blog interest: Urban interioritycultural memories in the built environment


This blog is a reflection of my exciting, yet solitary journey in which I am eager to explore my inner self and interests in collective memories and urban interiority. These topics also align with my career in the built environment.

Why memories? What is it about their power over the existence and meaning of everything surrounding us, from our rooms and homes to our cities and even ourselves?

Do collective memories still hold significance in today’s globalized world?

And how do they relate to interior design?

It is curious to realize that although we know the built world we inhabit is the result of the complexity of the human mind, we still tend to perceive it in a simplistic and disjointed way. Why does this happen?

To get to the bottom of these questions, I would like to reflect on my childhood: I have very few memories of this period, except for a vivid image of lying alone on a bamboo mat in our living room, gazing at the dimming street lights from the main road and letting my mind wander along the “grey lands” with insatiable curiosity. Surprisingly, these “grey lands” have turned out to be the very starting point for most of the missing pieces of a puzzle that I’ve been playing with until now.

As Carl Jung said, “The world hangs on a thin thread and that thread is the psyche of the man“.
