Abstract [en]

Hose K. is a project about exploration of dreams, Kafkaesque landscapes and the temporal architecture of human psyche. It starts as a personal journey through the dream world in order to finally capitalize in form of a Josef's K. house.

The architecture presented in this project as well as the House K. itself consist of four elements (dreams) derived from Josef's subconscious: The Voyeur, The Doorman, The String Theory and The Dog.  And just like in case of dreams, which can only be experienced individually and on a very personal level, these elements are never revealed as a whole to anyone but Josef K.

This thesis is a laboratory, striving to look beyond formal and conventional conception of architecture, by focusing on perception of spaces in both conscious and unconscious realities.
