Genius of Almaty
This project explores into contextual urbanism. Particularly, the spirit of place and sense of belonging. The research is very personal as it looks into various questions of: ‘‘ How does the city make you feel at home?’’, ‘‘How can one feel belonged in a place?’’ and ‘‘What is a hometown?’’. Methodically, I have approached the research in a field study way. I have walked around the city to understand what might make me feel at home. Different answers popped to my mind and all of them were depicted through a comic styled narrative. Themes such as memory, senses and history were explored through the use of urban character of different locations of Almaty. On the right, you can see a full graphic journey of my research.
