Dr. Roger Kemp’s background in commercial and hospitality design has informed his interest in the way in which interiors form a significant spatial and social contribution to the workings of a contemporary city.

He has extensive teaching experience in a range of settings in Interior Design. He has lead teaching workshops in a numbers of institutions including VCU in Doha, Qatar, Konkuk University in Seoul, South Korea and La Salle in Singapore. 

Roger’s active interdisciplinary design research practice, “Making Distance”, in collaboration with Anthony Fryatt, utilises a range of media including film, installation, exhibition, drawings, models, montage and text to explore interiors beyond the restrictive parameter of interior space as a condition of enclosure. His work has been shown at Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI); Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, Doha; Brighton University, UK; Form Gallery, State of Design Festival; Bus Projects; Forty five downstairs; Pinup Gallery; Federation Square, Channel 31 and AFTRS. It has also been shortlisted for the Australian Interior Design Awards. 

Roger is an executive director of IDEA - Interior Design / Interior Architecture Educators Association.
