Domus Verbi on Belgrade’s Cultural Transversal, Serbia

Ksenija Bunjak
2008.


The project activates existing Belgrade’s cultural street and creates House of words – Domus verbi underneath today’s Student Park, where, by new excavation of Roman thermae and their conservation and restoration, an Archaeological Park would be formed, keeping the existing greenery. The main idea was to create a complex that would put together all functions related to the word – from its concept, through pronunciation in different languages and its listening and reception to the art of its recording and reproduction. The aim of such a facility establishment is the approximation of language and words, ipso facto, of customs and cultures in certain spaces.
