Society of places

Since 2010, SVET VMES is exposing and transforming acute in-between common areas of existing educational and public buildings. By applying a very distant lens on the numerous interventions of our practice, I intend to communicate and focus on the relationships between this new software infills, dispersed within the existing old hardware. What is the suspense between these small worlds - if any, that are situated so close to each other but have completely singular, imposing, almost utopian-like identities? Can we learn from this landscape of continuous interventions, ever-changing in time, balanced in dynamic equilibrium? Lastly, I intend to zoom in on three recently completed architectural projects, where the hardware itself instigates the formation of diverse society of places.
