Our location was the
Tourist palace in Split. Our task is to question a new typology of tourism, due
to the negative influences that we got from the rest of the world through the
years. The main idea was to connect the tourists and the locals in a specific
place and a specific programme. We wanted to make a symbiosis. Symbiosis can be higher order of symmetry, and we
tohough that the comunication and the contact are very important in our discourse.
To connect two different object, in our situation people, you need a common
interest. If our house wants to function it needs a programme which connects
locals and tourists in a same space.
We saw Diocletian palace
as an inspiration because of its diversity of typology and programmes that it
gathered through the years. The need is to create a flexible space so it can
develop a sinergy between our users due to the discourse that we chose.
Defining the borders is
very important so we overlaped different dots of interest next to our location:
diocletian palace, market, transport zone, the sea shore, and riva; pedestrian paths, influences of our dots, and
with multiple layers we concluded the position of our house.
There was also a problem
what typology for this project. We inquired into different typologies such as
blocks, highrise, „flying“ object, and platform, and we concluded that for our
project platform is the best suitable object: mkes spaces that are verx similar
to places in mediterranean region, it easily connects our dots, and it
communicates with the ground floor and the first floor.
Expanding the terrace of
the existing building to a public+ platform and converting a Tourist palace to
the housing+ object we investigated many forms of platform due to the specific
programe it could possess.
