Architectural identities and their projection and interpretation can be viewed as multi-layered and multi-faceted occurrences. The main goal of the Nine Pavilions studio is to review and utilize architectural and urban design tools within the broader context of contemporary architectural practice. An additional goal is to research the relationship between architectural design and the theory of (Japanese) identity, while designing a universally recognizable architectural product. Problematizing architectural identities aims to find its contemporary spatial equivalent, to project the desired values.
The approach is based on the (re)examination of the relationship created by the newly designed architectural interpretations, vis-à-vis the framework of its spatial and programmatic frameworks. The implications of this approach goes beyond the simplified architectural form, but rather emphasizes the design process, borrowing from the qualities of identity from its environment of origin. The task of Nine Pavilions studio is a part of a year-round project marking 140 years of friendly relations between Serbia and Japan (1882-2022), gathering experts from both countries, promoting cultural activities and good neighborly relations.
