The Basics Interior Architecture
series from AVA Publishing’s
Academia imprint offers an essential
introduction to the subject of interior
architecture and the ideas that
underpin it. Detailed studies of
contemporarywork are used to
support basic theories, making this
book an invaluable reference tool to
all students of interior architecture,
as well as those with a general
interest in the subject.

The fourth in this series,
Elements/Objects provides
a clear and enlightening investigation
into the ways in which precisely
placed forms can be used to
organise and manipulate interior
spaces. It examines the fundamental
ideas that influence the design,
placement and organisation of
particular elements or objects and
discusses the effects that these
have upon the perception and quality
of the character of interior space.

The Basics Interior Architecture
series also includes: Form +
Structure, Context + Environment,
Drawing Out the Interior and
Texture + Materials.

of undergraduate and postgraduate
interior design programmes at the
Manchester Metropolitan University.

Ethical practice is well known, taught
and discussed in the domains of
medicine, law, science and sociology
but was, until recently, rarely
discussed in terms of the Applied
Visual Arts. Yet design is becoming
an increasingly integral part of
our everyday lives and its influence
on our society ever-more prevalent.

AVA Publishing believes that our
world needs integrity; that the
ramifications of our actions upon
others should be for the greatest
happiness and benefit of the greatest
number. We do not set ourselves
out as arbiters of what is ‘good’ or
‘bad’, but aim to promote discussion
in an organised fashion for an
individual’s understanding of their
own ethical inclination.

By incorporating a ‘working with
ethics’ section and cover stamp
on all our titles, AVA Publishing aims
to help a new generation of students,
educators and practitioners find
a methodology for structuring their
thoughts and reflections in this
vital area.

Function

Above:
View through to
the reception area
The steel and glass
elements of circulation
converge at this point.

Documentation Centre, Nazi Party Rally Grounds

Name:
Documentation Centre,
Nazi Party Rally Grounds

Location:
Nuremberg, Germany

Date:
2001

Designer:
Günther Domenig

The manner in which an existing
building is remodelled allows
the designer to make an ethical
statement about the original
purpose of the building. The
Documentation Centre is situated
in Kongresshalle in Nuremberg.
Much of the city, which suffered
massive damage during the
Second World War, was rebuilt
but it was difficult to know
what to do with the massive
Kongresshalle. It wasn’t until 1998
that a competition was held to
design the documentation centre.

Domenig’s approach was to
aggressively thrust a steel and
glass shaft diagonally through
the building, thus shattering
the balanced and classical
nature of the original building.
This uncompromising process
undermines the intentions
of the earlier structure; it is not
a sensitive interpretation but
is making a moral statement
about the meaning of the former
Kongresshalle. The diagonal
element, which is 130 metres long
and 1.8 metres wide, contains
the circulation. Visitors climb
on to the element to enter the
building and traverse its whole
length, before disembarking
and wandering back through
the galleries to the entrance area.
It literally smashes through the
walls; no attempt has been made
to clean up the internal junctions
between old and new, they are
left wounded and broken – again
an ethical statement of intent.
The new function is a declaration
that deliberately challenges
and destabilises the original
use of the building.

‘Onlywhen one stands on the arrow-like structure,
walks through it, sees and almost feels how the metal
cuts though the stone does one apprehend what
the architect Günther Domenig means when he speaks
of driving a stake through the flesh of the building.’

Christian Schittich

The junction between the
existing building and the new
additions are left raw and
exposed: a contemporary
commentary on the ideology
of the previous function.
