We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the winners of one of our Honorable mentions for the “Urban Zoo Coworking Design Challenge” competition - Daniel Movilă from Romania!
Daniel Movilă from Romania
I am an architecture student interested in digital architecture and digital fabrication. This year I established my own start-up in the field of modular off-grid, sustainable housing. We are only a 4-person team, but this year we will appear at the München Green Concept Exhibition in March 2019. I am the editor SHARE Architects, the Architecture Conference Organizer from Central and Eastern Europe.
We are undergoing a study at SHARE Architects, in which we asked over one hundred well-known architects about their opinion on the future of architecture. The common vibe was that architecture is in a constant state of change, both of its paradigm and definition. For me architecture is more about solving problems (ethics) than aesthetics. I believe the architect has a social role firstly, especially in a post-communist country like Romania, where the need for change is ubiquitous, yet few know how to make it. In this scenario architects have a big social role to play.
There’s something about a deadline that makes you create things you wouldn’t normally start do. This type of work should be a constant in the work of architects, as they enhance their creativity and quick problem-solving.
Don’t do it, it’s addictive like a drug! Once you start doing them you get caught up in wanting more and more. Which eventually isn’t such a bad thing. But at the end of the day, the most important things are the experience and the adrenaline before the submission deadline.
