The Genealogy of the discipline of Interior Architecture.The Mission, Education and Oeuvre of Gatekeeper Jul De Roover

This proposal aims an in-depth study of the work and professional life of architect Jul De Roover: his writings, education and practice. De Roover occupied gatekeeping roles within interior design education, gave shape to the professionalization of interior design in Belgium and designed some noticeable housing projects. It is motivated by the assumption that a better understanding of this pilot project will help to develop a framework for the investigation of other actors that had a key role in the development of the discipline of interior architecture.
