//PEER IGNITE BY CATRIONA HENDERSON
Catriona’s education and exhibition centre “Ignite” is strongly influenced by the history of Ravenscraig steelworks. The steelwork influenced both Motherwell and the people living in the area dramatically for several decades. Ignite tells us the story of those people, but also gives visitors the opportunity to explore the material steel.
There is no such thing as “Interior Design” because there is no word for it.
The German word for Interior Design is “Innenarchitektur”, which would be translated into “Interior Architecture”. This issue influences people’s perception of what the Interior is or could be dramatically. Design is simply not Interior Design.

1 Learnlab As someone who experienced the typical school class layout, I agree that this is creating a hierarchy between students. It’s incredible to see how technologies actually allow us to finally move away from thoseoutdated teaching methods. It is really time for a new approach.
2 Roll it We are all living a dynamic life that is constantly changing however the places we life in are rather static. Roll it challenges that by creating a micro housing solution that can be adapted to different activities by literally moving the whole house.
3 Softshelter Softshelter is using a paper, one of the simplest and most accessible materials to provide spaces for people in need of them. I like how simple and effective this system is at the same time, using paper “walls to create shelters.
4 La soglia magica The magic threshold is a room which is translating the emotional process of a person who`s entering a new country into a spacial experience. I am amazed by this project, as I was running through this room before trying to catch my train. I can remeber how I thought this was a weird space.
