Each diploma student chooses an individual project topic which best represents
his or her interests, knowledge and skills for their final Diploma project.

Living in a global village gives plenty of opportunities to change the working and living environment. Thanks to sharing economy, which is a system based on sharing of resources, renting a car, or apartment in any part of the world was never as easy as now. The need to own a house is becoming smaller every year. This design proposes how this can be encapsulated within an architectural framework, that is based on the methodology outlined in metabolic theories and practises.

Reminisce Architecture is about storing and revisualising zeitgeist memories through
architecture. Specifically how memories can become an architectural manifestation within a
museum typology, as a monument and as a time capsule.
Data, carved, inside 10.000 years high resilience quartz glass allows us to create digital
fossils. These engravings allow people to interact with the stored data through AR contact
lenses. Accessible within memory theatres for immersive experiences or via browsing the
etched archive, the memories become visualised as holographic dynamic point-clouds.
The Central Park Reservoir offers the perfect void for Reminisce Architecture.
Inspired by the idea of the unfolded Guggenheim Museum the main path cuts into the water
and leads through a series of courtyards, circling the digital fossils and memory theatres,
down into the architecture.
Reminisce Architecture turns itself into a fossil over time...

The treatment facility and fabrication of the artificial organs suggesting an alternative use of the particle accelerator is proposed in Inglewood, California.
Donor organs shortage was and is always on the agenda of healthcare. Nowadays the technology of bioprinting lets us print flat and firm tissues (e.g. meniscuses), while bioprinting of the volumetric functional organs remains a challenge due to the fragile structure of the scaffold in the tissue. The project proposes to use the synchrotron to reinforce the scaffold during the process of bioprinting. Having the synchrotron as the base body of the project's formalism - the other services of healthcare facilities are adjacent to its shape to maintain the technological circulation. Unlike classical hospital typology planning, Decell Lab emphasizes the use of the public spaces. The role public spaces play in usual medicinal facilities is rather excluded - waiting rooms, in most of the cases, take subsidiary priority. The Decell Lab's program of the public park gradually transforms from the intimate zones to the exposed ones, offering its users optional activities and making people meet people.

The work deals with the possibilities of emergent urban strategies, bottom-up systems exploring capacities and the possibilities of multiple and adaptable systems. Topological thinking connects urbanism with architecture. The project develops a forgotten artificial heap in the middle of the city and transforms it into a sustainable, structured cluster of residential, development and technological units. The successive strategy preserves the qualities of the area and develops the hidden potential of the place. The discrete architectures of the units are articulated in a coherent language based on the original factory designs. A key element of the hydrogen city is a factory for the production of hydrogen and its bottling, which expands into the production part of the units themselves. Each unit fulfils a different purpose from residential, to share, to energy, which retains energy or purifies greywater. Independency on other supplies of energy open discussion about a new way of living and working, or energy is free and there is no car needed in the hydrogen island. All circulation is reachable to 15 min walk or via cableway. Units are located into forest nature, the main moment is a central lake also serves as a recreation.
