On Wednesday, 26th February 2015, students of first year of Master studies of Architecture were honoured to have architect Faruk Kapidžić as a guest lecturer within the course Architectural Design VII. The Olympic Swimming Pool Otoka, Avaz Twist Tower and Avaz Business Center are only some of the projects marking his career.
Architect Faruk Kapidžić started his lecture on Swimming Pool Otoka design and construction process by explaining the conditions in which architects work in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in terms of laws and regulations of spatial and urban planning. The lecturer led the students through a very interesting chronology of the project: from the recognition of a human need for a specific activity to glory of the project execution, vividly explaining the issues and difficulties of each phase and ways to improve oneself during the design process.
Mr. Kapidžić gave valuable piece of advice to future architects, emphasizing that when both functionality of the object and type and quality of construction are satisfied, designing the visual appearance of the object will be easier and more successful.
After answering numerous student questions, members of the Concept magazine, led by students of Architecture department, made a short interview with mister Kapidžić, which you can read in the following edition of the magazine.
