The proposed facility is not a classical building, but a spatial structure, three-dimensional representation of history and development of popular culture. It is the materialization of the world of ideas placed into the real world; a statue telling the story of pop culture over time.The building consists of three parts differently shaped by a different concept of formation of space: the aboveground part of exposition, the underground part of the educational spaces and facilities, and a parterre between them. The building is in the vertical direction more porous and more transparent than traditional houses. Due to the absence of floors aboveground replaced by the system of walkways and perforated surfaces of the ground floor it can be enjoyed simultaneously height and depth of created space. Even from the adjacent sidewalk it can be clearly visible the contrast between the part of a fantasy world of ideas materialized in aboveground exposition and to an underground filled with dynamic creative work. Parterre sandwiched between them is a neutral semi-public space, through which penetrates inside the building the everyday life of the city around. It is a place exactly halfway between the creative process and its results. From here it is possible to descend and plunge into creative work, or climb up and learn from the pop art works.

Pheromonics design strategies

Natural behavior of the artificial living creatures can be reflected and embeded into the computational models used in urban speculations in order to discover and explore emergent phenomena and potentials of selected urban dynamics.

Synthetic landscapes

Artificial landscapes emerged from disruptive processes which can be observed in computational models whilst the potential of their spatial organization and surface character can be understood as a novel type of pattern and tectonics of the future cities.

Symbiosis

Test of user defined and controlled behavior of the moving agent-based system in order to disturb the spring elements in the field. Can two diferent systems live in mutual symbiosis?
