Abstract [en]

The main idea of my thesis work is to deal with the problem of an adaptive reuse of an existing building, which has been designed many years ago and now lost its function. And the way I am approaching this - is through the idea of infection.  What if an existing building becomes infected by new purposes and qualities, and if so then how this move could be performed and realized?

Unlike the majority of the adaptive reuse projects, mine has at its core the idea of introducing new feathers and elements in the way that it’s natural and a bit illusive, without contrasting the newly added to already existed. My goal is not to reveal this materiality difference. What I’m presenting today is a completely new envelope but from the inside you still can see this repetition of circular forms and understand that these are the same silos, which at some point were deformed in order to perform a different functions.
