project description ‘Glass Peristyle Project’
The project is a virtual intervention in historical architectural complex protected by UNESCO (Peristyle, Diocletian’s Palace, City of Split, 305 AD) the goal of which is producing general public’s discussion on recent urban issues. Unexpected and paradoxical public responses to the project have motivated author to do some further theoretical research from which the model for design with new media has been derived (virtual incubator in which architect is just a moderator, and networked public is a collective author).

project description ‘Spaceless Project
The project deals with the position of human body in new hybrid space, originating in the collision of virtual, urban and physical space. Author’s intention is to put performer and audience together in a spatial installation which is created by the same audience on Facebook, using Google maps and data visualization software as a designing/moderation tool. Spaceless is a spatial testing of the Glass Peristyle hypothesis.
