The Sphere

Best Project of Building or Facility by Student

About the project
With this project I want to show one experimental approach, manifest for the meaning behind architecture, for the philosophical side and depth, for architecture as a story, as an experience, for the spaces which devour the person and make way for the the imaginary perception of reality to be the driving force. Especially this project is concentrated on the double reading, where everything has more than one exact answer and is open for the individual interpretation. The main example for this double reading is the clash between order and chaos, two absolutely opposing contrast characteristics, derived from each other and the story of their metamorphosis.In the context of the new era and with the idea of optimisation and perfection my project in it's fundamental form starts from one ideal sphere. With it’s gradually metamorphosis the form passes through different stages. Separated from the ground in 2 parts, the deconstructed sphere consists of two parts — above ground and below ground.

Applicant and author of the project
Marina Rumenova Nakova.
«I am recently graduated architect with a master degree from the University of architecture, civil engineering and geodesy (UACEG), Sofia, Bulgaria. For me architecture has always been a passion and I think that the designing concept of buildings, interiors and spaces overall should tell a story, emphasize on the character of the place. I use my projects as a manifesto of the meaning behind architecture, about architecture as an art, as a way to provoke and inspire.»
