Design a bird home to fund wildlife charities
We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the winners of the Honorable mention of our “MICROHOME 2019” competition - Davor Robitschko from Hungary!
Davor Robitschko from Hungary
I studied architecture in Hungary and Finland, and gained work experience from offices in Northern Norway and the capital of Hungary. Now I work on my own in my home office in Budapest as an architect and 3D artist, combining the creative and professional side of both fields of the building industry. While I focus on architectural visualizations for international companies in my creative studio SkandiVisual, I also work on small-scale architectural projects in my home country.
As an architect, my absolute focus is on small scale innovative architecture, where I can build a bond with both the client and nature in a future-conscious way. As a 3D artist, I learn from other architects and try to grab the essence of their ideas to convert them into a computer-generated image. The most significant design experience I was involved with was a lifestyle, rather than a project. I built a home-made camper van with my wife from an old ambulance car, and we travelled around Europe while I still ran my business from a laptop powered by solar panels on the van. Since then, I try to focus on projects that make life better, and bring people closer to nature.
Due to technology and ever-growing global knowledge, humanity drifts further away from its origins. Architecture should (also) be the connection with the role of being human. Pure, creative, rational. We shall see in a few decades whether we are able to play this role or not.
Creative thinking is one of the best things that we can do without even moving a finger. And this is the key to what architecture vision competitions are about. Not to mention that they make me want to acquire more knowledge in a fun way!
Just give it a try! You will learn a lot about the topic, and even more about yourself, while developing presentation and visual communication skills that will come in handy both in professional and private life.
