Nicholas Thomas Lee defends his dissertation Dwellscape: The Contemporary Dwelling Interior as a Domestic Landscape.             

The Ph.D. dissertation engages in an architectural discourse on the spatial organisation of the contemporary dwelling interior. Through a reconceptualisation of the contemporary dwelling interior as a ‘domestic landscape’ the notion of ‘Dwellscape’ is proposed as a productive spatial organisation strategy. A ‘Dwellscape’ is defined as a continuous ‘domestic landscape’ composed of a relational field-configuration of distinct architectural elements, which define ‘places’ that accommodate specific activities, as well as delineating ambiguous interstitial ‘places’ that can support inhabitant appropriation in a multitude of ways.
