DIVE CLUB 

is a conceptual project, won second prize at 38th Zagreb Salon of Architecture for Diving Club Concept/selector Stefano Boeri.

CONTEXT

Location was initially planned to be in Zagreb, at Salata, but the Diving club is a project which can be easily imagined at any location on the planet.

CONCEPT

Would you like to dive and fly simultaneously? The Diving Club is a water-full sphere made of stratified glass, a material often used for aquarium. When diving inside,  people can watch birds, clouds, the city… When it is seen from the outside, the image is inverted. That is an idea which is currently ahead of the technology in Croatia. The prejudices about material, form, content, function… are broken, there are no lies, the transparency is veracious and logical. The project is of typology: it infers a certain degree of leisure, rebelliousness, acceptance, … onto potential locations.

CURIOSITIES

The project was presented for the first time at 38th Zagreb Salon of Architecture in 2003 (among the other 7 projects). The selector of the Salon prof. Stefano Boeri, Italian architect, urbanism expert and critic included our 5 projects in the main exhibition. Before he left, he had suggested first prize for the Dive club. However, our colleagues architects concluded that the project deserved a 2nd prize, so they ‘complemented’ the selector’s decision.
