The students were focused on identifications and mappings of unforeseen impulses of Modernism, reactions on space and interventions in space that were generated during the time; and further understanding the needs and potentials; and at the end suggestions of possible future interventions according to the identified elements / principles / impulses of modernism, and in the contemporary context of New Belgrade Blocks. 

The results acheived during the wokshop, were evaluated on the final exhibition on 29.11.2018 by critics, tutors and supervisor. The 3 teams around Block 23 were evaluated as the most successful.
