Dr Sabina Tanović’s recent research focuses on architecture as a space for remembering. As an architect, she is concerned with the memorial genre as a designing process that aims to understand and respond to social currencies.
To see how memorial form originated and evolved, her talk will address the following key points: how architectural space supports memory and commemoration, what innovative design solutions are proposed in the face of social and political challenges, and how these solutions are implemented.
By mostly focusing on contemporary memorial architecture in Europe, her research takes a closer look into processes of designing memorials today and how these translate memories and experiences of human loss into an architectural space.
Dr Tanović’s approach takes cues from different disciplines, and aims to establish a relevant framework for analysing contemporary projects.
