KYIV - DISTORTED FLIPPED SEQUENTIAL AXONOMETRIC PROJECTIONS Like a carcase at the slaughterhouse, the project is cut open and partially flipped, it’s organs exposed, top and bottom exist in the same plane. The cut is not a straight line but zigzags through the project, by adjusting the projection angles of the axonometric projections of the parts, an orthogonal continuity is suggested.

KYIV - FLOORPLAN FRAGMENT SAUNA ‘Floorplan’ of a fragment of the 700+ m structure, here the objet trouvé serves as a sauna. The spaces are not necessarily designed but rather considered as a matter of fact in which program is sometimes inserted but more often is left intentionally blank.

RANDOM SPECIFICITY

My graduation project in Studio Border Conditions, location Kyiv (UA) deals with randomness as a design-generator. A small canal (stumbled upon on a dérive through the city of Kyiv) is investigated through intense mappings, collages, drawings, models and recordings. An objet trouvé is fabricated and subsequently spatial potentialities are then harvested from this collection and projected on a site and fitted with a program suitable for that specific location or left empty for people to wander around. In this case a 700m aquapark is emerging from the Dnipro river, cleaning water as it runs downstream and using this clean water for fish-farms, saunas, a restaurant, a fishing pond and swimming pools.
