Mikolaj Prochniak Link Modesty as the fourth pillar of architecture

IMAGE: Link to Zine

For my design intent, I added a fourth pillar of architecture – modesty. To communicate my ideas I designed a zine. I used it to outline why I think modesty is necessary in contemporary architecture, pointing to environmental issues that the discipline is currently facing. After exploring several examples of how modesty can be employed in architectural design, I created a simple proposal following the principles of modest architecture – a housing project that could potentially help the inhabitants of a region currently facing environmental challenges, Silesia.
