Artha Connection


The Artha concept is rooted in the site analysis and history of Digbeth. The initial study of the project focused considerably on the connection between the site and Digbeth community; this highlighted the role of experiencing and seeing art in strengthening the connection of the people to the place they live in.
Thus, the Artha project aims to create a bond between the creator of the art and its observer- the outsider. A major consideration in designing the building is represented by a sustainable project proposal. Therefore, the functionality and durability of the building over time will be the primary concern of this project.

My name is Oana Halapciuc and I am an architecture student in 3rd year at Birmingham City University.
I am interested in how to combine old designs and new designs and also how sustainability could be implemented for contemporary society.
During my time at BCU, I have been implicated in many events, such as; BIM in Birmingham
