Vesna Trobec collaborated with Architecture Professor Chris L. Smith to create a drawing that would accompany his essay. Both will be exhibited alongside the other at an exhibition titled: ‘Great War Island: Desert Fictions’. The project Great War Island: Desert Fictions addresses architectural and urban phenomena in the context of research and modes of writing. […]
An existing house nestled amongst trees at the base of a ridge will be a witchy, forested secret place for entertainment, music, and home life.
Pictured above is an image from the early Concept Design stage as the two design firms collaborate to re-think the existing interior spaces of a terrace house in Paddington. More updates on the design process coming soon.

The shared interest was in the intersection between Art, Cinema, and Architecture. Drawings, films, photographs, and texts were created that explored ‘architecture in film’ or ‘architecture of film’.

A challenge was to improve upon the conventional terrace house type and to work within two very narrow and long sites. Below is a (very tiny) preview into the often […]

When an architect designs modifications to another architects work, it takes place like a conversation. In this case, it is a non […]
