Manifesto of Interiors explores contemporary architecture as the convergence of physical and mediated spaces, encompassing mass communication and digital platforms. While the Internet has accelerated the overlap of space and media in recent decades, this book traces the roots of this hybridization process back to the Renaissance and addresses interior spaces as a central laboratory in shaping modernity. Considering all forms of representation as inherently architectural—spanning from writing to photography, from drawing to cinema—the manifesto examines contemporary interiors as platforms of “expanded media” that simultaneously belong to different places and temporalities, whether physical or virtual, close or distant. It ultimately delves into recent phenomena, such as the rise of social media and the challenges posed by the Covid crisis, underscoring the pivotal role of interior architecture in defining today’s world.

During the European Heritage Days in September 2022, different departments of HEAD – Genève collaborated to explore the history of the old Charmilles football stadium, a once-significant feature of the Geneva landscape, now replaced by Parc Hentsch. The Interior Architecture Department created a series of outdoor installations inspired by the stadium's elements. The overlay of the old football field's footprint on the current site formed a unique pitch, allowing for renewed games in the space, surrounded by stands. These installations, developed with students, aimed to rekindle the collective memory of the place in a contemporary and playful manner. Visitors were welcomed to participate in various activities, including a football tournament with unconventional rules that matched the unconventional pitch's geometry.
