Report of the Jury of the 39th Salon of Architecture

Jury of the 39th Salon of Architecture consisting of:

  • Irena Videnov, Chairperson
  • Duško Filipovski
  • Nenad Stjepanović
  • Miroljub Stanković
  • Maruša Zorec

Hereby notes that there were 233 work nominated for this year’s Salon within all the categories. The Jury has decided that 112 works deserved to be included in the official selection, and that 77 works from 6 categories: architecture, urban planning, interior design, experiment and research, publications, architectural review, were eligible for awards.

During the selection of the works submitted and evaluation of candidates, it has been noted that the topic of this year’s 39th Salon of Architecture, IS completely set “in reality”, as if it has pre-defined the essence: in which milieu of social responsibility today’s authors realise and promote their work, (attempting) to consistently follow their expression and the value of an authentic designing process, while, at the same time, they should justify the investment, “overcome” a bureaucratic mechanism – set parameters and limitations, in the current context of the environment in which they are acting. The topic of what is REALLY possible and feasible, what is a current state of the creative process, how much we really deal with the originality of a justifiable and clear expression, and what sort of work it brings as a result – these were the criteria for awarding the following honours, acknowledgements and prizes:

for the realised project

Paralympic Centre in Kragujevac

The author takes into consideration the overall reality of the needs of the thematic centre users, sportspersons with disability, without any barriers for accommodation, reconvalescence, recreation and rehabilitation, and also incorporates simple, ground-floor, accessible and logical forms through a clear and suitable character. The author stood out with this work as he had used natural materials, without lobbying for the popular trends and materials, but firmly following his perseverance in the idea and process of realisation of the entire facility. In his work, the Jury also recognised the facility’s unobtrusive fitting into the historical heritage, whereby the historical value of the famous Memorial Park 21st October by the architects Ivan Antić and Ivanka Raspopović in Kragujevac was touched and repeated through the use of traditional bricks in a simplified, this time ground-floor form of balanced masses. The Paralympic Centre is a significant, successful creation which has been the only one of such a type in this part of Europe so far.

for the realised project

N1 Housing, Kragujevac

The facility stands out with its realised innovativeness and interpolation of 2D street form of façade and its interior space organisation, in a courageous composition of a street pellicular structure made of HPL materials, whose obvious function is to protect, both in the context of real space and unreal, chaotic, urban environment, which the authors successfully subdued. The authors made the most of the enforced limited access to the building, at the expense of the street façade map which is clearly raised from the terrain, thereby carefully dosing the final design of the entire form in a positive context. The problem is still reflected in relation to the facility’s neighbours, in the proximity of the domineering gable walls and in concealing of these very neighbours. With this and the previous project, the Jury wholeheartedly supported the distinctive regional development, through displayed, realised prominent works in smaller urban areas.

for the realised project

Ghana – Cargo Centre

The comeback of a national construction engineering giant – Energoprojekt to the world scene, both in designing, as well as in constructing of significant public facilities outside the European continent, inspires optimism in our professional reality. The facility stands out with its clear design expression, clear form, distinctive authorial handwriting. It is a realised project that gives a special incentive to the Serbian architectural margin, at the global level.

for the realised project

Interior Design of the Company Seven Bridges Genomics, Belgrade

The extensive and demanding undertaking of 5,000 m2 of office space, in reality, when employers are often not “present” to provide their employees with an adequate space for productive work and creation, for a short break during their working hours – areas which, by their purpose, equipment, installations, applied technology, make the achievement of the best results possible inside them; in this space authors went even a step further, they achieved a visual and material balance, play of light, colour and reflection by combining the entire area in a simplified and logical form.

for the realised project

W_Workshop

Real has been shown. The project resulted from an initial idea-challenge to achieve what is expected, space as installation, from the existing elements on the site, to create some other works in the same space… Defiance and persistence at work. Any praise of “folly” – is at work here. Or today that can be called “sustainable architecture”. The Jury of the Salon gives special honours to the realisation of the facility and, within the concept of other realised projects, offers as an incentive to think how to continue to be free from all prejudices. For the sake of good work and good results.
