Domestic Interior Database

by Jeremy Aynsley and Harriet McKay, Royal College of Art 
 
The Domestic Interior Database (DIDB) is a database of 3,300 textual and visual entries of homes across Britain, Europe and North America, 1400 – present.  The purpose of the project has been to investigate, analyse and interpret DIDB’s wider applications for research and learning and teaching in design history and practice.  It has focused upon identifying the necessary developmental tools, methods and approaches for the use of Database in this and related fields.  In particular, via a series of workshops conducted with students and educators, they have sought to evaluate the criteria that will enable them to improve the usability of the Database as a digital learning resource for the future. 
 

This Design Scholarship Seminar will discuss the background to the CETLD project, talk through the way in which it has been conducted, and will invite the audience to investigate both their findings and the DIDB itself.
