Soft to Hard Canopy

location: Belgrade | size:240m2 | status:idea

While majority of the exciting projects and current research in architecture goes from material to immaterial, from physical to digital, from solid to fluid, from mechanical to biological, from hard to soft, we explore the opposite route, leading us from Soft to Hard. In continuation with the research project at the University of Belgrade, we have developed a detailed and site specific proposal for a Canopy. The design s is highly adaptable and could be easily adjusted to any other locations while keeping its material, structural and organizational logic. The intent is to create a new public space as an environment within any existing context which may be in the need of restructuring or reactivating. We hope that proposed architectural gesture, besides providing for solar protection, could be the trigger for many different patterns of use. Read more

Slavija Square

location: Belgrade | size:20 000m2 | status:competition

Second prize at the competition to redesign Slavija Square in Belgrade. The proposal aims to create a new public space at the busy traffic junction in Belgrade. The notions of movement and change are taken as two departing points of the study. The movement is related to the dynamics of numerous vehicular and pedestrian traffic routes which all intersect at Slavija Square. The change is related to the weather, most notably to rain or snow falls, but also manifested more subtly through oscillations of temperature, humidity and solar radiation. The proposed interventions consist of many elements, rather than a single and central gesture. Read more

ABC Route

location:Trstenik | size:2,5 km| status:competition idea

First Prize at the competition for a bicycle-pedestrian route that connects the city of Trstenik to the monastery complex Ljubostinja. Several stopping points /A-F/ are planned to be located along the route as small resting places each with a specific purpose.

The competition brief called for an architectural solution for the public space with the changing use throughout the day. Exactly the topic we would choose to work with. According to the brief, green market was to occupy the place in the morning hours, and in the afternoon and evening this was meant to become a public square where different forms of street art would unfold and people would gather and socialize. We thought that either/or strategy doesn’t work, that market and any form of social or cultural activity would work much better in synergy and have developed proposal which provided for simultaneous events.
