Based on the M9 Master Project: Theses & Project.
Exhibition Almost Transparent Blue – Hotel – Belgrade Seaboard explains the key elements of the methodology implemented in this research-by-design project, consisting of thesis followed by architectural design, and, based on results, conclusion. Theoretical field of research is built in a balance between architecture and philosophy (phenomenology), aesthetics and theory of form, technology and ecology. Spatial framework makes natural-real / imaginary landscapes Belgrade at the sea, an endless amount of blue, of air and water being its main characteristic and primary (non-) formal content that is projected over Belgrade as an architectural shot or sequence.
Boundaries of the program reach territories of tourism, recreation, wellness and life-style, while boundaries of the scenery outline the horizon of Belgrade facing Pannonian Sea on its north side. This means that among thematic and spatial context represented in the depth of transparency and blueness students could maintain an individual frame of design. Instability of contemporary architectural professional field engages a variety of design principles that are, in this project, raging from fully aesthetic autonomy of its formal appearance to erasure of authentic domains of its physical outlines. The aim of the case study itself is to set out the thematic structure of the project through the abstraction of different elements and their contextual relations. The potential of a video as a media, is chosen to represent a visual capacity of the topic set between its formulation and notion with intention to be translated in the possibilities for further projections. According to Nicolas Bourriaurd, object of architecture still possess the value of the shape able to communicate, in the scope of architectural design, topics within the wider cultural surrounding. It is the offer, equalling a spatial ability to become at the same time landscape of both settlement and mobility.
