Im taking part in an architectural competition (yes, again! to be honest it's what I do in my life ) for a futuristic design in Warsaw. It would be really great if you vote for me by futuwawa.pl/gora_miejska_na_te… by clicking a heart next to my design, typing your email and confirming it (it might be in spam folder). Check out of course other entries. You can switch the language on the site to Polish/English in the upper right hand corner.
design description: The project involves the creation of a set of three city mountains on the former FSO test track. Detached houses with gardens are designed on the slope of the highest mountain. Access to the buildings are possible from a spiral ramp around the hill. Services are located on the second hill and on the third one a kindergarten, a school, and a sports center with a football club for young people from Praga district are available. Pulled-up buildings have allowed a recreation park to be designed in the surrounding area. A large number of lawns generate biomass that, suitably processed, could be burned in the incinerator located inside the highest mountain. The CITY MOUNTAIN would generate a new:
QUALITY OF SOCIAL LIFE -mountain : an accumulation of buildings - availability of many different functions in a small area - houses with gardens - more flats - the release of land - park - a large public space –space for sport and recreation for the inhabitants of Warsaw - education through sport for young people from Praga district
RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT - pulled-up buildings - saving space - the accumulation of functions - biogas - green energy - the usage of easily accessible and currently wasted material to produce energy (grass from the park and surrounding green areas of Warsaw) - park - a natural landscape park on the bank of the Vistula River - no destruction of the ecosystem - a large biologically active space, biogas fuel
QUALITY OF THE ARCHITECTURE -restoring multi-layered social life in a post-industrial, degraded area - houses with gardens 15 minutes from the city center - the preservation of Vistula River's natural bank.
Thanks in advance!!!! Maja

Hi Guys, Sorry I haven't added anything new for such a long time - soon it will change. This is all because I married Zawij (https://www.deviantart.com/zawij) :3 and we're creating a new space for living and working! It wasn't only happy time, few days before the wedding my beloved Grandmum died, and I am deeply sad about it:( It's a challenging time for me right now, but I will start developing my Deviantart profile and I have an idea for a new project, that I hope will be big for me! stay tuned! and btw you can check out out invitations that we designed and created: more on Behance https://www.behance.net/gallery/40214749/our-wedding-invitation xoxo Maja

My deviantART Story
I joined DeviantART 5 years ago, thanks to my old friend akreon (https://www.deviantart.com/akreon) . We know each other for 8 years now, we took the drawing classes togheter, cause both of us wanted to study architecture. We passed the exam in drawing and were at the same year at the Warsaw University of Technology. At first I started to upload my drawing to Polish version of deviantart (I didn't know there was such a website as deviantart.com then). When Akreon told me about deviantart I was so shocked that I hadn't known it before. People were so kind here, and she posted a journal then that I created my profile here, so many of akreon (https://www.deviantart.com/akreon) 's followers welcomed me
public transport will be available - there could be a river tram, I mean a ship I don't know the exact name in English, and trams along the road adjacent to mountains. What's more the bus could ride along the spiral road.
I love the look of this, and I could defiantly imagine living somewhere like this, but I have two questions. 1 what's the water runoff management, and what's the plan for erosion prevention long term
1. we don't have problem with water in Poland - we are always flooded, however we have plenty of it. I know that it's a problem in some part od the world but we are happily not one of that countries, and that design is upon the largest rivers in Poland. 2. the mountain won't be build as artificial rock - it's just the name. it could be built using concrete and modern materials. It will be empty inside.
You put a lot of thought and effort into this, I can tell...from the positions of everything to the aesthetic appeal of the design. I just have to ask, though: did you have an avocado in mind while making this? I just kept staring at the terraced mountain and thinking "avocado. Avocado Mountain."
