CENTER FOR PROMOTION OF SCIENCE AEDAS PROJECT 03.1 SECTION A YEAR: 2010 LOCATION: Belgrade, Serbia BUILD UP AREA: 18000m² PERSONAL ACHIEVEMENTS: SECTION B -master plan and student center design -board design for the project presen- ta on -project reached the ﬁnal round of the compe on. CONCEPT The basic idea was to develop a design that could preserve as much “green” park space as possible. The proposal takes each of the facility buildings and simply organizes them around an ‘organic core’. The func- on of this is further op mized with the loca on of the ‘Student Centre’ directly in the middle of the plot, crea ng a communal gathering area. The university building should dip down in the South corner of the site and raise to its highest point in the North. This will allow for light to penetrate the park space as well as making an opportunity of crea ng a roofscape accessable to pedestri- ans. ARCHITECTURAL APROACH The idea for the overall architectural dialogue was derived from under- standing pedestrian ﬂows to and from the site. The aspira on was for a logical development that allows users to ﬂow under, through and around its buildings. This con nuous sloping structure that starts at the South end with two levels and ends with six levels at the North is divided along its central axis by a long glazed MASTER PLAN atrium into two parallel stripes.

Although it should be a modern hotel, it should also re- ﬂect the architectural tradi ons of Montenegro. Architecture of the hotel need to a ract permanent guests as well as tourists in its res- taurants and entertainment areas. SITE CHARACTERISTICS: The loca on of hotel "Igalo" has an irregular trapezoidal shape. On the north side is local street with less in- tensity, and on the southern side is street with more intensity, and through it hotel looks on the beach and sea. The terrain is slightly uneven, and the height diﬀerence between the two streets is 5m. On the east and west side of loca ons are neighboring lots, with a low storey buildings. On east side of the site there is a natural stream, which ﬂows from north to south.

This was ac- complished with two tracts set in a V-shape, and spread towards the sea. The main entrance to the hotel is between the two tracts, and to it we introduced a new local street, which is connected to the main street. Within the hotel complex "Igalo" we deﬁned areas for the following pur- poses: -Space for a restaurant -Space for a shopping center -Space for a delivery and technical func ons of the building -Space available for accommoda on units -Free and green spaces -Traﬃc areas For facade of the hotel, the inspira- on was found in the surroundings of the loca on and architectural tra- di ons of Montenegro, and so the choice fell on vegeta on and stone. Stone is used in the podium levels and core walls, and vegeta on is used on all typical ﬂoors.
