At first glance, a red and white patterned carpet should float along the longitudinal axis of the drying building. At second glance, it should look more like a ramp. Think of Bourgeois and Zumthor's work in Norway, and note: the space has an extraordinary atmosphere. Approach the ramp to find that you have been deceived, someone has altered the quality
The scope of the workshop was to introduce participants to the basics of photogrammetry, while mapping a part of the out-door exhibition of Terra Studio, in Kikinda, Serbia. Students were taken through a crash-course on the different stages of photogrammetric data capture, in order to better understand what the specific challenges for each step are. Photos of ceramic sculptures and
The project proposes a brick line that connects Balta Szeles and Balta Herișanu at the heart of the quarry lakes in Jimbolia. This is a discreet, theoretically minded and historically reflexive intervention into a fragile environment. It responds to the requirements of the competition and it is mindful of the past of the city. The dialectic of memory and erasure
UBB worked alongside UAUIM in the 5th workshop “Curating Triplex Confinium. How to build up an exhibition”, offered for all of the students enrolled at the Kikinda summer school.

”Expanding Natural Borders” belongs to that group of entries which placed their ideas in a wider context of the man-made, nature-reclaimed hybrid landscape of Jimbolia’s quarry lakes.

The project entitled ‘Shifting Perception’ is an entry highly appreciated by the jury for its thoughtfulness, showing deep connection with the site. The project points out – and draws its concept on – the basic problematic of the current situation: people’s lack of deep relation and understanding of the site. Thus, states that a shift in perception is to be
As we did at the first Triplex Summer School in Jimbolia during the past september of 2021, in Kikinda we also bet to work with the memory and the remains of the built heritage of the town of Kikinda.
A light intervention, with small constructions inserted at key points in the site, nicely woven with the vegetation. Their concentration on the borders would help bring together the lakes with the rest of the territory, while leaving the heart of the area mostly untouched. History is present in a symbolic way, becoming a resource for the future and a memorable experience.
The “Say Clay” workshop represents a continuation of the previous exploration conducted in Jimbolia in the Think Brick workshop. While the focus of the previous workshop was on the application of the finished ceramic module – a brick, which is widely available in the Banat region, the focus of this workshop is placed on making an actual clay product. The
”Jimbolia Together” covers a large part of the competition criteria. It values the concept of brick by the fact that it uses this material to build the chimney, but also by the fact that both the pontoon and the social space in the dried lake are made of pieces that mimic the shape of the brick. In this way, the
