Can something that is at hand be part of the space?

The goal of the “One Element” experiment is to show whether one element could connect several different scenarios in space.

With more and more mass construction, we come to the problem of excessive diversity of spatial units. Every day we meet that within the plot, street, city we can see different structures that they do not fit with each other. Whether they have to be at all is a question for all of us.

Is it possible to use one element to unite several different wholes and thus connect the comprehensive space The architect wondered Mirko Milanovic from Belgrade.

Is it possible to use a single element to unite several different wholes and thus connect a comprehensive space?

This experiment provides the answer to one cubic element could fit into more spatial scenarios and thus tells us whether it is possible in the future to create one or a couple of structures that are compatible with future architectural and design projects or as in this case the existing situation.

“In this way, it is possible to create spatial units that will have at least one common element and form an unbreakable link between them.” – says Milanović for our portal.

Use each square of space in the most rational way possible

As the future comes, due to the great oversaturation of the area where the percentage of large construction is we will need spaces where each square of space will have to be used in the most rational way possible while satisfying all socially functional needs.

“An experiment like this gives us the answer to that – maybe it won’t be an element in the form, but a color, a material, or even something else.” – says Milanović.

All photos for the experiment were taken in Belgrade with a personal phone and a box in one hand.

All the photos for the experiment were taken in Belgrade personal phone and box in one hand. The box fits into each special frame.

During the photography itself, attention was paid to perspective and manipulation with the space itself and how to further emphasize a certain shot. Later, each photo was processed through post-production in Photoshop, in the form of color and contrast.
