    vienna AUSTRIA

    suckerPUNCH: describe your project:

    emre ICDEM: The main idea of the project is to evaluate religion as a mystic power that occurs at the event of horrific. It gathers people, creates social interactions and conversions. In this case the cathedral is designed with the idea of a “religious campus” that serves as a public space.

    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    “the intercalated urban system extends to the integration of horizontal, vertical, and diagonal movement at a range of speeds and viscosities. movement patterns develop as an emergent system of organization, and in combination with tectonic ordering systems, challenge the tyranny of centralized core and associated striation of space. this urban topology implies seamless connectivity through circulation patterns, extending into and reprogramming adjacent systems and spaces within the moma.
