Playground

Kalemegdan Playground

Kalemegdan

Playground is designed

by the highest level of EU standards (EN1176).

On the other hand,

the morphology of the new design is adapted to the morphology of the adjacent surroundings, famous hills of upper city of Kalemegdan fortress, the very core of Belgrade.

Project Info 2013 The design of the playground is a result of a careful analysis, numerous interviews with children’s parents and huge cooperation with public institutions. The bearer of the appearance is the landscape, so called “hills” that are designated to become one huge toy for kids, but at the same time to make kids more independent and skilfull.

Kuwait Martyr Monument

proposal one

It is also important to know that Islam doesn’t allow any visual images and / or depictions of important figures in its history.

Isometric perspective

The concept of martyrdom comes from the very beginning of Islam.

Project Info 2013 We were invited to offer several sketches / proposals with our visions how the monument should look like. The concept of martyrdom comes from the very beginning of islam. It represents all the values worth sacrificing and renouncing for, therefore it is very respected and reputable.

proposal two

Many theorists see

the “New� concept very different from the original ancient one, hence the context of this competition is also a bit sensitive.

Isometric perspective

Martyrdom became more popular during the last quarter of twentieth century, due to many wars connected to islamic world.

Project Info 2013 We were invited to offer several sketches / proposals with our visions how the monument should look like. The concept of martyrdom comes from the very beginning of islam. It represents all the values worth sacrificing and renouncing for, therefore it is very respected and reputable.

Jedan : Sto / 100

winning proposal

The solution is sculptural as one of its dimensions is emphasized i.e. enlarged to a monumental size.

ITS SIZE TRANSLATES IT INTO A SURFACE.

It’s height relates it to the notion of table. We occupied the interior of the pavilion with one designed gap.

Project Info 2012 Solution that we offer is a table which with the surface of its plate almost entirely fills the pavilion. By denying or inverting the scale we wanted to bring the object to its extreme meaning i.e. the universal, indivisible, sculptural, banal.

serbian pavilion

LARGE SURFACE IS PRETTY. IMMENSE SURFACE IS BEAUTIFUL! We wanted to emphasize a term - large empty area. The relationship between the table surface and the volume of the pavilion creates tension and defines its value. Perception is the theme that arises and that belongs to the atmosphere the most. Simple is associative and is subject to diversity in perception. Impossibility of perceiving the object as a whole and its transition to the surface is what makes it beautiful.
