Davor Robitschko

Davor Robitschko from Hungary

I studied architecture in Hungary and Finland, and gained work experience from offices in Northern Norway and the capital of Hungary. Now I work on my own in my home office in Budapest as an architect and 3D artist, combining the creative and professional side of both fields of the building industry. While I focus on architectural visualizations for international companies in my creative studio SkandiVisual, I also work on small-scale architectural projects in my home country.

Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance what scale have you focused on/preferred, any significant projects where company/ individuals have been involved?

As an architect, my absolute focus is on small scale innovative architecture, where I can build a bond with both the client and nature in a future-conscious way. As a 3D artist, I learn from other architects and try to grab the essence of their ideas to convert them into a computer-generated image. The most significant design experience I was involved with was a lifestyle, rather than a project. I built a home-made camper van with my wife from an old ambulance car, and we travelled around Europe while I still ran my business from a laptop powered by solar panels on the van. Since then, I try to focus on projects that make life better, and bring people closer to nature.

What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

Due to technology and ever-growing global knowledge, humanity drifts further away from its origins. Architecture should (also) be the connection with the role of being human. Pure, creative, rational. We shall see in a few decades whether we are able to play this role or not.

Why do you participate in architecture vision competitions?

Creative thinking is one of the best things that we can do without even moving a finger. And this is the key to what architecture vision competitions are about. Not to mention that they make me want to acquire more knowledge in a fun way!

What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture vision competitions?

Just give it a try! You will learn a lot about the topic, and even more about yourself, while developing presentation and visual communication skills that will come in handy both in professional and private life.
