Assignment.

The program framework for the project assignment is the Research Center for Spatial Structures; the design context is the complex of the Scientific-Technological Park Belgrade in Veljka Dugoševića street at Zvezdara, and the thematic framework is mereological tectonics. Mereology deals with formal studies of part-whole relationships. This theory is the basis for the development of open-ended generative systems for creating spatial structures. Starting with variable finite elements / units / cells / modules using different generative patterns, the task was to construct a structure / assembly / agglomeration / modular continuum. Studio intended to explore the concept of digitally intelligent architecture that belongs to what is called the second digital turn. 

In order to ensure the achievement of the expected outcomes, we specified the design methodology, which was implemented through phases: _ analysis _ generation _ conceptual architectural design development _ conceptual structural design development _ post-production. Each phase had specified assignments and results that represented the input for the next phase. The analysis phase commenced with the exploration of the space of intervention, literature, and design examples. The results of this phase were formulations of the program and the design intention. The process continued with the generation using physical models and computational algorithms. In this phase, based on the part-to-whole relation, the task was to define module, composition rule and to produce algorithms that enable design explorations. The conceptual architectural design development involved further elaboration of the design from the aspects of function, form, and materialization, while the phase of conceptual structural design included analysis, optimization, and fabrication. In the phases of conceptual designs, students produced detailed technical drawings, models, small scale prototypes of the structure, and other design representations. The post-production phase included the workshop during which students produced VR renders. The principal task of the post-production phase was to prepare an exhibition from the selected artifacts produced during the process. In the educational process, we used a blended model as a means of expanding studio activities that combined online features and face-to-face practice in a complementary mode.
