With the information age coming to an end, the augmented age is posing challenges to the future of the interior design discipline. Although the immediate concern revolves around the mass-produced design applications, 'one click interiors', and the lack of personal style as a victim of globalised trends, the realisation of Augmented Reality is challenging the core ingredient of interior design, the physical space. The perception of space is being re-invented allowing for an overhaul of 'home' as a defining feature. Inhabitation is no longer controlled by the rigidness of materiality, while the future of locality and memory is questionable. Subsided by the flexibility of a 'drop-down menu' offering limitless options that currently are considered utopian, the parameter of creativity and design are becoming variables to well-orchestrated algorithms. With both elements, 'interior' and 'design' being challenged, the philosophy of the discipline must be adapted to survive within the new computation system. Which is the skill-set required to secure interior designers against technological unemployment and how should academic curriculums be revised to prepare students for the future? Are the new augmented/digital spaces creating a new reality that is changing the way we interact challenging the boundaries between public and private spaces? Will the design of 'physical' space become the 'new' hand-made?
