In the era of Covid, we are occupying, and thinking about, interiors in new ways. HIG member Annmarie Adams reflects on the impact of Covid on interest in the field and concept of interiors in a recently published blog essay “This is Where We Live” on Parlour. Her review ranges from a recent article by Jill Lepore in the New Yorker, popular reactions like the “Room Rater” twitter posts on the interiors of media personalities, architectural criticism, responses by design firms, and events including the “wildly successful” inaugural HIG-SAH Connects webinar of last month.

HIG is an important forum for our work as our area of inquiry grows increasingly visible to the public and to academic communities.
