Hi all! I am Dijana Milenov and I am a graduate student of architecture at MIT.
I lived in Serbia until I was seventeen when I moved to an international boarding school in Italy. After that I finished an architecture and design degree at the University of Florida and this is my second year of graduate studies at MIT.
As a designer I am interested in the ways art can reveal knowledge and trigger possible new realities. In the times of abundance of data I believe that it is important to promote problem-solving skills in designing for knowledge. My architectural explorations question the function of beauty in our daily lives and in our relation to the environment. I have spent the last year away from MIT travelling in Serbia, Israel, and France working with architects with similar agendas.
My hope for this class is to improve my writing skills and to become freer and more creative using this media. I am very excited to work in a diverse group and learn from everyone!
