d r e a m y

giving pleasure or contentment to the mind or senses
( Merriam Webster Dictionary)


Can architects push themselves to depart from what the discipline traditionally acknowledged as architectural space in order to explore new territories that take into account the use of energy within an environment?

This project speculates on alternative ways to treat Belgrade mosquito problems using drone technology.  Instead of polluting the air above inhabited lands with aggressive insecticide spraying, drones could be employed to precisely locate and eliminate mosquito larvae habitats as well as individual adult insects.

The Great War Island, being centrally located  and surrounded  by  water, is a mosquito-friendly environment, making it an ideal ground for treating Belgrade mosquito problems.  When finding  and eliminating a mosquito, each drone would emit a light signal, simultaneously taking part in an aerial spectacle above the island – and turning all three surrounding Belgrade river coasts […]

The project proposal anticipates architectural infrastructure responding to locally collected airborne data.Where needed, the installed devices would enable a precise adjustment of local microclimate conditions as well as crop matter content within large agricultural landscapes, coping with sudden weather fluctuations and, consequently, to significantly increase food production in […]

The focal point of this project is exploring quality of air and light at the University of Belgrade – Faculty of Architecture. The main sources of air pollution are smokers, heating and poor air circulation. Lightning provided by daylight and lanterns is not enough. The idea is to solve both problems with one structure. The structure will simultaneously work as a filter and as a bulb.

The aim of this proposal is to trace the non-constant border of personal space and define spatial relationships among people. By exercising our right to personal space, we directly occupy the air around us.  In indoor spaces, people are obliged to behave in a certain way and their distances are predefined. Outdoors, they are able to act more freely. Therefore, public space provides polyvalent forms of action that shape the appearance of space and air. While mapping different events and situations, air, as transmitter of information, is being used to define spatial and social relations among its actors.

This projects speculates on the possibility of nomadic habitation within the lower layers of troposphere.
In earlier times, nomads  would move when they needed resources. Today, the need to move is triggered by many different factors, such as job requirements, seasonal climate changes, or merely adventurous spirit.
Wandering pneumatic pods would provide living conditions for contemporary nomads in any environment, urban or rural. When in the city, the pod connects to an existing building using its infrastructure to recreate full comfort of any regular flat (with a spectacular rooftop view!). In the nature, transparent membrane enables direct and immersive contact with the […]

PolyArk 5: PolyAir
E-Tree
Aerial Alchemy

This project is based on a single, environmentally friendly and useful, device designed for augmenting, enhancing or just creatively shaping air space in public urban areas.
A device with an ambition to bring additional comfort to green areas within cities.

Based on the idea of immateriality, it focuses on designing space defined not by a single border line, but through gradients of energies nested within its surroundings.
This form of air conditioning focuses on altering airborne information usually not controlled by humans, such as weather, illumination, and directed data flow by creating inviting, overlapping microclimatic zones that are friendly, hostile, […]

“In the context of pollution, carbon emissions, and climate change, the air is an essential public good. Yet air is invisible. It is boundless. It is difficult to control, to own, to divide, and to observe. It belongs equally to everyone in the city, no less shared than traditional fixed public spaces of parks and streets. Air is public space, but it must be claimed and activated.” // (The Living) David Benjamin & Soo-in Yang, 2010
