What is your architectural philosophy?

I wish I could answer, and I want to share but we will need few hours… I mean we are architects at the end of the day, can’t makes us stop thinking or especially talking.

What inspired to create your proposal?

The initial drive I had to create my project for nanobiotechnology was my love for the field and its enormous effect on today life and our future technological development. Apart from that, I also wanted to express the value of knowledge and the importance for collaboration between social, cultural and scientific (or technological) parts in our life’s. I wanted to create advanced institute of knowledge and experiences that is edgy, creative, fun and funky. This way maybe it would inspire someone as I got inspired before that.

Who inspired you to become architect?

I am not sure if its ‘who’. Of course, I am inspired by many architects, cinematographers, artists and etc. But I think what rally inspired me is all my life experiences to that moment in life, my friends and their influence as people, my family, all my passions even the ones not directly connected to architecture… Or maybe the architect guy from Prison Break. Now you would never know the true answer.

Why did you choose to study architecture?

Because it’s the perfect mix between many fields, which matched my passion to explore and enrich my mind, learn new and different things, searching inspiration in everything, while creating work that impacts people life, hopefully for the best. Architecture offers the opportunity to know a bit of something for everything.

What is your best memory of the March Architecture Course?

I have many memories of time spend with my friends sharing happiness, troubles, ideas, sleepless nights, a lot of food and coffee, deadlines and dark circles, countless of laughs and tears, parties and long walks of profound conversations, and obviously cut fingers…you can say we did put sweat and blood into our work. I truly think I cannot choose only one memory, there are too many comedic and tragic stories I have shared with my friends and tutors. But definitely can say you create relationships for life after spending everyday of your entire course in studio environment.

Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?

Regardless of plans there are too many things that can happen or not. Life will surprise you at every step, especially a clumsy person like me, but definitely will be trying to do what I love, get a dog and enjoy every day even with the occasional grumpiness and artistic melancholy, which a good stock up of ice cream can fix.

What was the most challenging part of your project?

I think most challenging was my unsuccessful attempt to not make my life easier and do something beautiful but simple. But I don’t have regrets as I learned a lot and with its all successes and imperfections managed to create rich project that challenged me.

I guess in few words I am hopeless lover of sarcasm and food. Geeky artist and ‘nomad’ that loves exploring by travelling or challenging my mind, and an old soul that is most probably crazy.
