The Trans(in)spiration building is a design proposal for a competition. The solution creates an organic living system within a rigid built environment. The project has an exterior self-regulating protective skin is comprised of large water reservoirs containing algae which filter water and air.

More than a proposal to retrofit a Los Angeles Federal Building, the design solution aims to become universal by making use of existing resources, rainwater and greywater, to create a natural system easily adaptable to any similar structure. It is more than a site-specific project; it is a low-budget concept that can be disseminated across geographic and cultural urban centers on various scales.

It surpasses, at low cost, the existing circulation barriers – road or railway – without affecting them, and creates a contemporary public space with different possibilities of use – stage of major events or a hanging garden in the middle of the industrial area. It is not a question of urbanizing the port lands, but of enhancing the opportunities in that area, improving urban conditions and eliminating the deficiencies of the old city and its equipment.

The system is dynamic: evaporation of this water provides a cooling effect in the warm season and also during the cold season this skin provides excellent thermal inertia. Referencing the new skin, but on a smaller scale, natural cooling towers surround existing staircases in the building. These towers work simultaneously with the new facade to improve cross ventilation and allow the building to transpire when needed.

Our project proposed forms, spaces, constructed with musical notes. An architecture built out of sounds. Considering music has a material of the arts, Wassily Kandinsky was searching for similar processes to his paintings during the early 20th century.

Rhythm, abstract construction but also repetition and dynamic perception. The influence of music to painting is continued to architecture through the investigation of the painting. This process brought the possibilities of unimaginable architectural discoveries. An architecture for the music inspired by the painting.

Architect’s education is not rational, it must address the emotion. Emotions are not just pragmatic as a building can be they are complex and enrich life. Being an architect is not only an occupation, it is a way of living. It is a vocation that becomes a need!

The new Riverside Center in Belgrade is a delicate proposal for a complex nature, where the Danube and Sava rivers meet.

WITH BETON HALA MONT

The concept presents a mesh / web that projects a new topography for the place. The web offers a flexible system in which each building can adapt to different uses. The transformation of morphology creates innovative solutions in public spaces that break with the traditions of conventional architecture and public spaces, due to their different natures.
