HILMI DZHAMBAZOV – Architecture Student – University of Strathclyde
Speech title: “Public participation in architecture”
Hilmi is currently finishing his studies in BSc (Hons) at Strathclyde, and working part-time in HTA Design, Edinburgh. The focus of his talk is participatory architecture and how architects can engage, and through which different stages, the public in design. He believes this flexibility and collaboration would benefit quality of living greatly.
He completed his high-school education in Bulgaria, specialising in mathematics and physics, and after graduation moved to Glasgow. In his third year he decided to expand his education and knowledge and went on to an exchange to IUAV, Venice. After working with very interesting people and developing valuable skills, further to compliment that experience he was accepted to join the Edinburgh branch of HTA for one year, where he still works today, and in that time was also interviewed for the annual publication of the Department of Architecture at Strathclyde.
