Home of the Future                                                                            Digi-log lifestyle a balanced lifestyle of a digital & analog Digitalization reshapes the realms of everyday life and alter our physical environments, including our homes.

Experiencing the Transience. The celebration of imperfection: a pavilion I always enjoy observing nature because of its unpredictability and its uncontrollable and dynamic behaviour. Usually I attempt to seek for spatial qualities and the traces of use in the build environment that developed in a natural way while I do not regard architecture as a […]

A Sacred-Spatial-Experience Searching for an alternative mutual-religious space in South Korea The starting point of my research was to define a ‘Sacred-Spatial-Experience’ in various religious spaces. Being Catholic, I’ve often experienced the intense and divine atmosphere in worship places like churches, mosques and temples. I am convinced that many travellers, regardless of their different beliefs […]

Cunucu Shacks. Here, There, Everywhere. The starting point of my research was the sociocultural impact of the tourism industry in Aruba, a small island in the Caribbean.

‘’On the Move’’ Learning from the highway by speculating on ‘verzorgingsplaatsen’. ‘’On the Move’’ is a 15 year-long strategic design and research project that explores ‘verzorgingsplaatsen’ (rest places, service – and gas stations) by interventions as an investigation on its hidden qualities. For my research I examined the system of highways and the places it has produced: ‘verzorgingsplaatsen’. Highways and ‘verzorgingsplaatsen’ are cobbled together with asphalt, road signs, lines and are usually not […]

Recycling Utopia: in progress My research investigates the phenomena of socialist mass housing in Lithuania as a physical outcome of the utopian promise to provide every Soviet family with its’ own apartment. In the 1990s Lithuania undergone radical changes due to its transformation from a soviet socialist system into a democratic and independent State. However, surrounded by rising shopping malls as physical outcomes of capitalism, Soviet mass-housing […]

Don’t Forget About Me Reigniting the lives of long forgotten textiles More than just a dressing, textiles are the soul of the home. To me, they are an unrecognised necessity that we all rely on, every day. Throughout my years of study I have lived in five houses in three different cities. This could equate […]

Jo Basset – Graduation...

Community: An outcome of human necessity Infrastructures in cities have long played a major role in serving physical needs to communities across centuries. Places like fountains, roman baths, and communal ovens developed out of basic human needs [drinking, washing, bathing, cooking] and transformed into social spaces. There, people gathered everyday, not only for their daily […]

Mila Tesic – Graduation...

WORMHOLES Awakening togetherness in Belgrade passages I was not born in Belgrade, but I have found many great loves there among them a love for the city itself. This love is an irrational thing, but it is the impulse which drove me to think about how I can make that dear city into a better […]

The Unfinished House – What if this was great? My research has as a starting point the phenomenon of the incomplete houses left permanently under construction in Albania, an archipelago of unfinished buildings scattered all over the country.

Isadora Davide –...

The street as a communal space Faro, Portugal Streets are spaces of collective memory; they are spaces that create a mental image of the urban environments in cities and they must offer, for instance, more facilities for its residents then just parking spaces. To recover local streets is in my view fundamental for a successful […]

The Domestic Vortex Two summers ago I visited the Venice Architecture Biennale. During a walk at the waterfront of Venice I noticed a rectangular island just before the island Murano. I discovered it was the Venetian city cemetery Isola di San Michele. The defensive walls that trace the island’s contours function as an optical and […]
