"The Interior Architecture Theory Reader," edited by Gregory Marinic, examines theory, history and production to embrace a full range of interior identities in architecture, interior design, digital fabrication and spatial installation.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 4, 2018) Gregory Marinic, director of graduate studies and associate professor in the University of Kentucky School of Interiors, is the editor of a new book titled “The Interior Architecture Theory Reader,” published by Routledge.

The book is composed of 50 chapters, which expand the discourse surrounding interior architecture. Serving as a theoretical survey of interior architecture, the book examines theory, history and production to embrace a full range of interior identities in architecture, interior design, digital fabrication and spatial installation per Routledge.

Marinic also recently wrote a chapter for another publication titled “Interiors for Extreme Environments.” In this book, co-edited by Deborah Schneiderman and Amy Campos, Marinic’s chapter examines extreme interiorities that began emerging in the late 1950s. It narrates how the Cold War and Space Age transformed global expectations for living in space and within extreme conditions on Earth.

Marinic joined the UK College of Design faculty in 2017. He is a theorist, scholar and educator, whose research and practice are focused on the intersection of architecture, interiority, obsolescence, adaptive reuse and geography. Marinic’s critical essays have been published in AD Journal, Journal of Architectural Education, Design Issues, Journal Design, AIA Forward Journal, International Journal of Architectural Research, and INt|AR Journal of Interventions and Adaptive Reuse.
