On 6 July 2018, Rachel Borovska received the KABK BA Thesis Award for her thesis First Encounters: Landscapes and Morality. Borovska graduated from the Interior Architecture & Furniture Design department. Her thesis supervisors were Ernie Mellegers & Sanne Paper.
Jury statement: ”The jurors were captivated by Borovska’s thesis, which explores the tensions and convergences between our natural and manmade environments and the systems we use to categorise and interpret them. Using her personal experience of the Slovakian countryside, where she grew up, and of The Hague, where she now finds herself studying as a designer, Borovska combines deep research, theoretical reflection, and the precise use of language to make a sophisticated interpretative reading of the city and its spatial organization systems as an integral part of the natural landscape. She hopes that her research will be useful to urban planners, architects and artists in their engagements with the urban environment. The design of the book is gorgeous and the relationship between prints and the text is especially well considered”.
