Acknowledgement within the category „Architecture“ for minimalism in the material and manner which opens up opportunities of complex interpretations.
- commentary of the jury of the 38th Salon of Architecture in Belgrade for the Primus Center building
Ured studio’s architectural practice is discussed on reference projects of different typologies through the topic of "[...] minimalism in gesture (and material) [...]". The lecture presents several projects selected with the idea to give a brief overview of five-year design work and experience. The constant in the Ured studio’s work is reviewed by rethinking the selected projects through the prism of the quoted comment of the 38. Salon of architecture jury. This acknowledgement was also the first verification of the studio’s architectural practices by the professional public. The question is whether the studio’s opus is characterized by the described manner in architecture, and how it is designed or manifested. Furthermore, the conditionality of minimalism in gesture is discussed through the topic of compromise between the concept and the requirements of the investor (client), where, first of all, frequent reviews are signified as a positive and active relationship between the architect and the client. In this context, rethinking is also seen as an important part of the process in the work of the studio, not only through communication with clients, but also through a specific design methodology. It is developed and challenged through academic experience in teaching and scientific research. Likewise, the achievements and progress of the design practice are questioned and verified by participation in exhibitions and competitions from reference areas.
