SOUNDLESS SPACE

Sintart* 01, Richter Collection/Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb, 2010
architectural proposal in collaboration with licensed architect Senad Nanić

Soundless space is an architectural proposal for anechoic room for one person with the purpose of complete physical and auditive isolation. Sole contact with the outside world would come from the sky view through the transparent ceiling. We can imagine such anechoic rooms in public areas of the overpopulated and noisy big cities of the contemporary world. People could seclude themselves in the room from several minutes to several hours, according to their needs.

Such anechoic room resembles by their properties similar room that is used in industry and medicine for different research purposes, but in the context of contemporary cities it is conceived  as place for pausing, relaxing and withdrawing from the tumult. For some they can, at the same time, represent a space of a more intense encountering of one’s bodily and mental expressions, a space of a voluntary experiment with oneself.

*The architectural proposal for the Soundless Space was developed in relation to the utopian, sinturbanist concept of a city conceived by Vjenceslav Richter.

 

Mjesto bez zvuka je idejno arhitektonsko rješenje za gluhu komoru za jednu osobu koja bi služila fizičkoj i gotovo potpunoj zvučnoj izolaciji. Jedini kontakt s vanjskim svijetom bio bi pogled u nebo kroz prozirni strop. Takve gluhe komore bi u idealnom sluačju bile postavljene u javnim prostorima bučnih i prenapučenih suvremenih gradova, a ljudi bi se u njih mogli povlačiti na neko vrijeme, od nekoliko minuta do više sati, već prema vlastitim potrebama. 

Po svojstvima nalik na slične komore kakve se u industriji ili medicini koriste za razna ispitivanja  u ovakvom bi kontekstu mogle biti mjesto za stanku, odmor i povlačenje od vreve, no za neke ljude istovremeno i mjesto intenzivnijeg susreta s manifestacijama vlastitog tijela ili uma.

*Idejno arhitektonsko rješenje za Mjesto bez zvuka nastalo je kao referenca na utopijski, sinturbanistički koncept grada koji je razvio Vjenceslav Richter.
