The aim of this work is to explore if the concept of soft nonlinear systems can be applied within the field of architecture. If we would recognize properties of the soft nonlinear system such as: dynamics, capacity to manage and process the move, changes and diversity, their parts are inseparable from the whole, hierarchy, constant changes which manifest new properties, sensibility; the goal would be to explore the way such properties, primarily non architectural, could manifest through architectural program and form.The project theme is cookery which changes the perception of food, as a part of the system which includes: […]

The colony is the manner of living together in close association in order to survive and produce food. When forming colonies species inhabit new areas and integrate into the existing communities. One such example are bacteria which form large colonies with intricate relations between their members to provide for their nutrition and survival. This project will explore principles of organic growth in heterotrophic colonies and will try to find their application in architecture. The intent is avoid formal determinacy and look for way to structure processes which will enable adaptability and flexibility of spatial structures.

This project researches into the role of everyday rituals and social processes in the formation of space. In line with the given framework probing into the relation between the food and space, this study investigates various cultural patterns shaping the space around us; and resulting with the authentic places.
Ovaj projekat istražuje ulogu rituala i društvenih procesa u formiranju i načinu korišćenja prostora; U okviru tematskog okvira koji povezuje hranu i prostor, rad pokušava da razotkrije različite kultrološke obrasce koji se ispoljavaju prostorno i utiču na stvaranje autentičnih mesta. Naspram negativnih apekata savremene prehrambene industrije, u ovom […]
The focus of this thesis is to investigate the role of food consumption as a trigger for an architectural experience, resulting in designing an infrastructure which will serve as base for temporary public events and socializing. The research is based on the notion that we live in a fast paced world today, where we don’t stop often enough to enjoy our daily activities and we’ve somehow ceased to appreciate the fine aspects of things we come to pass with daily such as food, as well as our environment. With this in mind as well as the […]
This project studies obesity. It will try to unravel relationship between dietary habits, education and architecture. Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have a negative effect on health. Such condition may be understood as an access accumulation of energy in an organism, created by the disbalance between calories consumed and discharged. This is a consequence of several intertwined factors such as: genetic, psychological, cultural, social and environmental. This project will explore the relevance obesity and the idea of energy accumulation in architecture, both as a theoretical model […]
Gene banks are a type of bio-repository, designed and built preserve genetic material. In an effort to conserve agricultural biodiversity, gene banks are used to store and conserve plant genetic resources. Their archives are made of seed stockings and contain plant segments in freezing conditions. This project will investigate the form and program of any such institution to be erected at rim of Zvezdara Forest in Belgrade. The design intent is to create entirely new ecosystem, capable to operate as an extension of the existing surroundings but also as an autonomous and entirely protected environment.

This projects explores the notion of hunger and tires to establish its meaning within architecture. Initially, the hunger is understood as a physical sensation of desiring food. It presents change within the system caused by the lack of nutrition and an impulse to resolve any such condition. In architectural terms, hunger may be understood as an impulse to change built environment. In architecture, the equivalent of starvation would be an empty space, a void. This projects investigates if notion of hunger may have positive connotation in structuring space; if users’ needs and interests may be interpreted as a constructive […]
This project engages with the relationship between human and animal habitats. It is concerned with the position of the live stock food production within the city limits; and investigates relationship between residential ares and farming landscapes. Moreover the project aims to establish beneficial relationship between recreational grounds, such as city parks and farming land such as grazing field. Although cities occupies only 2 % percent of Earth’s surface, they actually consume 75% of its produce. This is also true for live stock, as it still makes 1/3 of the overall diet of human’s population. Yet, farming is isolated from city […]
LIMINAL ECOLOGIES : yielding suburban landscapes
This project investigates the marginal space in the city embodied in suburbia with the aim to ascertain how this space can be used to establish communication between the city and the landscapes that feed it and between people and the natural state and origin of their food. Urban – rural dichotomies in the 21st century have drastically changed the face of suburbia as an idealized housing model into transitional spaces that can be likened to biological ecotones. Just as the ecoton represents the place of conflict between two ecologies, the suburbia represents the place […]
