Dragan Zlatković graduated from the University of Belgrade, IT department and became an Engineer for New Computer Technologies. He became part of the RESSÒ team and its only participant from Serbia. The team was formed by the ETSAV Faculty and created to participate at the International Competition Solar Decathlon Europe 2014 in Paris.
Zlatković continued his education in Italy at the Faculty of Architecture – Università degli Studi di Trieste. He holds the MA in Architecture and Building Engineering.
In 2013 he was chosen among 500 students from the Faculty of Architecture in Trieste as the one that will continue education at the Escola Tècnica Superior d’Arquitectura del Vallès (ETSAV), the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in Barcelona. This opportunity was financially supported by the scholarship of European Union and the Italian Government.
He became part of the RESSÒ team and the only participant from Serbia. The team was formed by the ETSAV Faculty and created to participate the International Competition Solar Decathlon Europe 2014 in Paris.
The aim of this competition was the planning and a prototype development of a building. After a realization phase that lasted ten days, the construction went through quality check that lasted a month.
The projects were evaluated in 10 categories, measured by a jury and by technical standards. The performances of the construction were evaluated using established criteria, tests and various measuring devices. The second evaluation was made by a jury of three to five members.
Team RESSÒ won three prizes on the Solar Decathlon Competition 2014: the first Prize for Architecture, the first Prize for Innovation and the third Prize for Urbanism. Jury was formed of three members: Thomas Herzog, Françoise Helene Jourda and the president of the jury Wang Shu, the winner of the Pritzker award for Architecture 2012. The building of the RESSÒ team especially stands out because of the house construction technique and new realization concept of residential buildings.
