Bie Plevoets studied Interior Architecture at the PHL University College in Belgium. Plevoets holds a Masters in Conservation of Monuments and Sites from the Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation, as well as a Ph.D. in Architecture from Hasselt University. Plevoets’ doctoral work explored the role of adaptive reuse within interior architecture specifically focusing on retail as a new function. Plevoets’ postdoctoral work at Hasselt University includes a continued investigation of this emerging theory within adaptive reuse interior architecture, as well as teaching several courses on adaptive reuse in the Bachelor and Masters programs within the Interior Architecture Department.

Koenraad Van Cleempoel has been engaged in establishing and directing a research unit focused on interior architecture at Hasselt University since 2005. At Hasselt, Van Cleempoel supervises several Ph.D. students’ work regarding aspects of adaptive reuse in interior architecture. Van Cleempoel has a particular interest in the theoretical discourse surrounding the reuse of heritage buildings, which he believes to be linked to the emergence of interior architecture as a formal academic discipline. Van Cleempoel has studied in Louvain and Madrid and holds a Ph.D. in Art History from the Warburg Institute in London.
