02 ARCHITECTURE AFTER VIOLENCE/ MUSEUM OF MEMORY AND HUMAN RIGHTS Academic project MASTER THESIS / 2017 Mentor: prof. Roy Emiliano Nash About project: War is a social field phenomenon. This term dates back to Ancient Greek philosophy and itâ€™s still changing to this day. Ancient Greek philosophers, and later Hegel, claimed that war is a product of a condition in which opposing forces act on each other to generate change. Compared to the modern times and the past, the basic meaning of the term didnâ€™t change significantly. Perhaps the changes are carried out in a different way and they occur more often, but all of them still use the same tool - violence. This work represents a case study of a victim of NATO bombing of Serbia in 1999-the Yugoslav Ministry of Defence(YMOD) building. YMOD building is one of the ruins of Belgrade that has been left in its post-bombing condition, unchanged and derelict, since 1999. By combining the opposing terms which are linked to this building such as constructed-demolished, war machine-war victim, I created a new concept-Belgradian Oxymoron or Belgradian Paradox. The main aim of this work is to show the intersection of architecture with violence, conflict, politics, social changes and human rights. Additionally, the aim is to determine what is the result of this collision and how to deal with it through the project of the case study of the building of Yugoslav Ministry of Defence in Belgrade. By preserving the existing values and giving this building a new meaning and function- Museum of Memory and human rights, this project aims to create a positive impact both on the city of Belgrade and on the collective memory of a nation.

03 INUJIMA LOOP Extracurricular project [with Srna Tulic and Serena Romito] Second year of Master studies / 2016 IC Advanced Architectural Design Studio Mentor: Sejima Kazuyo, Jonas Elding, Francesca Singer About project: Inujima-architecture becomes environment. Inujima is a small island in a quiet inland sea called Seto Naikai. You can walk around the entire island in about 1 to 2 hours. Once flourishing with industries as copper refining and stone quarrying, it is said that this small island had a population of 5000 people. However, along with the decline in the industries, the population on the island declined progressively, and now there are only about 50 islanders. The average age of the islanders is about 80 years old and the aging population and depopulation now remarkably limit the development of the settlement. Based on the analysis, we should develop a proposal for a project that establishes a clear relationship between the artificial and the natural landscape, between architecture and environment. The island as a whole is a place where architecture ultimately becomes the environment.

04 BLU SPA International architecture competition [with Kristina Azaric] January-March 2017 Blue Clay Country Spa, Beebreeders.com About project: â€œBLUE MIND: A mildly meditative state characterized by calm, peace, unity, and a sense of general happiness and satisfaction with life in the moment.â€? Bathhouse is floating, moving free inside the lake, contributing to the calming effect of nature on the human mind, as water helps amplify natureâ€™s soothing, healing qualities. Project for BLUE bathouse is riviving sauna culture in authentic natural Latvian environment. Placing the bathhouse inside the lake represents important sustainability notion since the lake becomes essential habitat for wild life and regeneration (non-swimming area). Balanced eco system is provided by biofiltration system composed of plants that are harsh frost conditions resistant, they include winter hardly lilies, winter hardly marginals and winter hardy submerged plants. By observing the wisdom of the bath ritual of our ancestors, you can escape the cares and troubles of everyday life, free yourself of stress, and revive the spirit. For riviving the spa ritual, exact bath ritual steps need to be followed: rising the spirit experience in sauna with swatting ritual using oak switches in order to provide healing properties, scents and energy. Swatting ritual represents both a massage and aromatherapy. Once when swatting is done the dead skin cells are gone and bathers are jumping into the natural pool for romantic being together experience in the outdoor tub created by the form of the bathhouse. Beauty treatments, such as using body scrubs or facial masks made out of blue clay and honey, also go hand in hand with the bathhouse ritual completing purification of the body and spirit.
About project: The object is composed of timber frames, that are occupying space of 400 cm in general plan. The basic baring construction are 16 timber frames in combination with timber arched beams for strengthening the complete circular system. Local available materials sustainability contribution is in timber frame structure of the pavilion, flooring system and roof timber cladding. Furthermore form of the roof contributes to water management considering the rainwater harvesting, where water shortages are collecting precipitation (rain, snow) transfering it to utility rooms, where it is being storaged for further multiple usage. Entire pavilion is constructed of negative carbon footprint materials.Using recycled polycarbonate as a main facade and partitional material reflects the functions and their privacy levels (transparency). Movable walls from polycarbonate are providing flexibility of the space and different modes of the bathhouse regarding the season, controling the closure of the object. Particular design and location of the pavilion required floating construction of 4mm thick ponton tubes with diametar of 100cm to ensure the safe floating of the pavilion.
05 ALTITUDE FREEDOM_LIGHTHOUSE Academic project First year of Bachelor studies / 2012 Elements of architectural design Mentor: Pavle Stamenovic About project: Experimental conceptual temporary living space in the lighthouse, away from the cities on the small island of the Baltic sea, where one can contemplate and create a connection with nature. Construction of the object is creating two spaces with different character-served (the core) and serving space (communication between different levels). The last floor is creating viewpoint and connection with environment.
06 JUMP INTO THE DEPTHS Academic project First year of Bachelor studies / 2012 Elements of architectural design Mentor: Pavle Stamenovic About project: Experimental space for the lifeguard on the coast of the Baltic sea in the gulf of Riga-Latvia. Except the required space for lifeguard the aim of this project was to provide diving â€œboardsâ€? on different levels. The structure is movable and it is moving together with a ocean currents.

07 STUDENT HOUSING BELGRADE Academic project Third year of Bachelor studies / 2014 Architectural Design Studio 4 Mentors: Nebojša Fotiric, Pavle Stamenovic About project: Student housing in the city of Belgrade on the inclined landscape of neighbourhood Karaburma. The topic was to analyze contemporary way of student living, their needs and types of spaces which students would use. Considering the landscape of the given location the aim of this project was to improve the existing neighbourhood (with keeping the existing illegal housing on the top of the hill) and its geological characteristics because it is a territory with a lot of landslides (by placing a project in the bottom of the hill making its concrete construction as a support “wall”). The building is working as longitudinal axes along which one single or double indenpendent units are placed and using the common space placed in the central part of the axes.

08 ORTLAB MILAN Academic project [with Sanja Otasevic,Francesca Da Pozzo, Maria Lucrezia De Marco, Paolo De Biase] Second year of Master studies / 2016 Building Technology Studio Mentors: Mazzola Francesco, Morena Marzia, Tagliabue Lavinia Chiara About project: A task is given by the Beni Stabiliâ€™s Symbiosis development project which is located between via Gargano and via Adamello in Milan. It is a project in the southern part of Milan which is still developing (phase 1 is in the process and phase 2 was a topic of our proposal). The topic is rentable office space considering all Italian regulations and statistics about Real Estate situation in Milan. Total built area is around 42.000 sqm including all services and rentable office space. Our aim was corporate coworking (mix of employee and freelance) as a new way of working, furthermore flexible open space dedicated to the creative fields (which we found as the most developed field in Milan including fashion industry).
LONG THERM THINKING Long therm thinking is the interpretation we gave to explain how a sustainable approach is declined in OrtLAB project. Starting point of our considerations is that sustainibility should be environmental, economical and social, and should take into account all the aspects related with the urban context in which the project is located. Our effort therefore has been to integrate all these different issues and propose a solution which could be still interesting and worthy also in a long-therm perspective.

09 HOUSING BELGRADE Academic project Second year of Bachelor studies / 2013 Architectural Design Studio 2 Mentor: Vanja Panic About project: The project is developed in the neighbourhood Zvezdara in Belgrade/Serbia. It is a housing project-individual family units with a ground floor dedicated to the commercial functions since the location is close to the city center. One family unit can be divided in two zones-day and night, where first floor which is zone used mostly for daily activities represents a connection with neighbourhood through the choice of material for facade and relation between outdoor (terrace) and indoor (living room and kitchen) space. This element represents an experiment in the architecture of housing in Belgrade and in general in Serbia because architecture and design of this region usually represents inwardness and closure where community is happening only inside the family unit and not in between neighbours.
