ROMAN VLAHOVIC is a studio for design and research within the field of architecture and design. For them, the designing process is an open field of possibilities that does not only question physical boundaries of space, but also provides answers to the phenomena of contemporary society and culture. In their approach, they use techniques in which they replace one-way architectural concepts with a series of parallel narratives, thereby provoking new and unexpected situations. Their interest lies in juxtaposing various fields of human knowledge, especially architecture, culture and information sciences.
MIRO ROMAN was born in 1983 in Zagreb. He received Master’s degree in architecture from the Faculty of Architecture, University of Zagreb. From 2011 to 2012, he attended the Master of Advanced Studies programme “Architecture and Information” at the Chair of CAAD, ETH Zürich.
