The project is a design for a private client’ s short stay hotel hangar that can be wheeled to different docking locations at an airport. The hotel lounge is an extension of the private jet which enables the clients to rest/ stay for a period of 24 hours before departure.

Margot Krasojevic Design – Hydroelectric Waterfall Prison – 12 Mar 2013
The concrete support is connected to 4-column semi-submersibles further stabilised by floating Tyson turbines. The prison consists of a series of cantilevered loops creating an even weight distributed throughout the rig. The contained prison surface is made from a web of reinforced steel elements embedded within holographic filtered glass panels, superimposing views of life inside and views out of the prison, this depth of field creates a surreal environments which gives the illusion of boundary-less architecture, a kaleidoscopic panopticon.

Buddhist Temple Ordos – 10 Oct 2012
This design has been commissioned by the city of Ordos. It is an open Buddhist temple located on the outskirts of the desert, an area used for meditation and religious ceremonial offerings. Mongolian Buddhist rituals dictated the design. Mu US desert has an extreme changing climate whose light levels affect survival and appropriation, an important design criteria.

Buenos Aires Art Museum : Architecture Competition Entry – 14 Aug 2012
This proposal for the New Contemporary Art Museum (NCAM) in Buenos Aires embodies the city’s dynamic cultural vibrancy. The building sits along the Rio de la Plata, plugging into the internationally influenced urban context as an architectural artifact representing the city itself. The design provides various exhibition and gathering spaces for both programmed and passive interaction between local visitors, tourist and the various exhibits of architecture, painting, sculpture, fashion and textiles.

Purifying Footbridge, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Water Purification Footbridge Concept Design

Purifying Footbridge Amsterdam
Water management and it’s circulation is still the most important function of Amsterdam’s canals. I am proposing a footbridge which filters and prevents pollutants and water stagnantion, as windmills once did. The main function of this footbridge is to help purify the canals and aerate the water in order to flush it through the city when the locks open.

Dynamics & De-realisation Book

Dynamics & De-realisation is an interdisciplinary work using philosophy, narrative and developments in computer science to define perceptions of reality and how these influence architecture – in essence what Merleau-Ponty called the “primacy of perception”. We first perceive the world, then we do philosophy, exploring what was once considered an illusion and how it has since become reality.

Decodeine Architecture Book

Dr Margot Krasojevic Book
The design projects have been developed as part of an ongoing investigation that looks at the reasons for using computational design methods and software from a sociological point of view, questioning the production of formal investigation and examining the emergent relationship between digital tools for design, communication and architectural manifestation as a result of theoretical analysis.

Recent Margot Krasojevic Project

Dichroic Illusion Stations, Ordos Shi, Kubuqi desert, Inner Mongolia, Peoples Republic of China
2011-
Dichroic Illusion Stations

Cable Car Stations
The project is for the design of 2 cable car stations along the edge of the Gobi desert, starting from Ordos city the trail leads into the desert, a major tourist attraction. The form developed using a computer software which applies the dynamics and physics in order to simulate a specific environment, such as the Ordos desert, this helps understand caustic light patterns predicting the form’s influence within it’s environment. An important mechanical test rather than purely a formal gesture.

Floating Gallery
The gallery warps space using folded surfaces to create a continuous ever-changing
environment in which the art is viewed. London as a moving background alters perceptions of the gallery, blurring the edges between static and non-static, defining a series of projected spaces that simulate the existing physicality by using the boat as a lens through which to view London.

Fractal Geometry Tower, New York, USA

Fractal Geometry Tower : 1st Place Research Category – Architecture of Israel
The Tower is positioned on the edge of a pier in Manhattan’s Battery Park New York. The building programme consists of an ever-increasing gallery space that sits within the suspended surface. The plans do not dictate the Tower’s perceived presence, reflecting geometries distort the surface pattern iterations (dislocating physical from the perceived), affecting the manner with which the individual engages and appropriates with this space.

Hidden Highrise

Hidden Highrise

Hidden Highrise
Using architecture to harness/dictate the natural elements/contexts/environments employing this illusion to create a virtual environment, phenomena replicating nature by drawing attention to the physical space in order to provoke multiple horizons, and perceptions of both the actual and virtual projected space within architecture. The virtual projected inner space attempts to make us conscious of the moment, the situation invoking a space from which to consider the affect.

The Observatory – Animating Light Landscapes, Troms, Norway

Aurora Borealis Observatory

Aurora Borealis Observatory
The Northern Lights appear when large numbers of electrically charged particles (electrons) stream at high speed in towards the Earth along its magnetic field eventually colliding with the highest air particles. The air lights up like a fluorescent light tube. The resulting colours reflect gases present at collision; the most common is a yellow-green colour that results from oxygen.
The charged particles originate from the sun, some are captured by the Earth’s magnetic field finding their way into the Polar Regions.

The exhibition intends to show 5 areas of the gaming and film industry as a cross cultural dialogue between China and The U.S. Mr. Chang Qiang a structural engineer specialising in digital fabrication from Tsinghua University advised on the 3d printing and laser cutting of the hyperbolic structure and the surface routing, printing facades and motion capture stages.

Swimming Pool : Altered States, subconscious realities and pathological space

Swimming Pool Design
Time is no longer a linear condition, instead we can postpone, edit and cut our immediate recognitions, creating buildings whose identities along with our observations are no longer definitive, by replacing symbolic gestures with sequential design. Ephemeral space reflects evolution and ever-changing contexts. The individual interacts with their environment in a perceptually bias manner, auto-ilot responses dictate this relationship, anaesthetising and replacing unprocessed reaction with predictability, regulating premeditated experiences in order to understand convention.
