Vienna, Austria
I was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1990. I commenced my studies in 2010 at the University of Applied Arts Vienna in Studio Wolf Prix and earned my Magister degree in 2017 in the Studio of Hani Rashid. In 2006 I got engaged with the topic ’climate and densification in urban environment’ which still has the main influence on my current work and projects.

The Permanently Temporary


In the Age of Gravity Independent Architecture

The Permanently Temporary


In the Age of Gravity Independent Architecture
The project investigates the future of urban environments and proposes a new ephemeral (flying) infrastructure which while provides climatically controlled temporary spaces, becomes integrated with the existing urban-fabric to increase the city’s dynamism, adaptivity and by that also its capacity.

Type of project
  • Systemic changes

By the introduction of the proposed ephemeral spatial system, the project aims to visualize potential solutions for emerging issues due to 1) climate change; 2) population growth in urban environments; 3) and the “urban scissors-effect” (=increasing contrast between the rigidity of the built environment and the rising importance of the notion of temporality in everyday life).
The vision is based on
• Hypothesis 1: If architecture could be ephemeral and adaptive, the existing city volume could be programmed more efficiently by the activation of its time-dependent snooze-zones. The resulting shift in the urban pattern would support the intensification of the city and the establishment of a new social contract;
• Hypothesis 2: If the building elements of ephemeral architecture could fly and self-organize according to the spatial demands, the urban space transformation could become smooth and fluent.
