From the architect. This urban sculpture, a new Tivoli info point, is actually the end of another story, the¨TrimoUrbanCrash 2007 competition¨ and beginning of a new project. In the first competition, two projects were chosen to be built as temporal structures. After two months, the event was finished and we took them apart to be recycled. At this time four separate initiatives for permanent use of pavilion came to municipality of Ljubljana, and it seemed to be the perfect opportunity to reuse this urban sculpture. Initiatives were brought by International Center of Graphic Arts (MGLC), National Museum of Contemporary History, academician Jože Bernik and deputy Jožef Školč.

Because the Park Tivoli is a very protected area, where you are not allowed to build, we had to search for a new location within direct vicinity of the park. The final resting place for this sculpture turned out to be an untidily grassy triangle, located directly by the park entrance. By placing the sculpture here, we have revitalised this meadow and established a new entrance to Tivoli park. We've a made clear connection between Celovška street, the Tivoli Sports and Event Hall, and Tivoli park.

The new purpose of the sculpture is to inform visitors of different art installation and museum exhibitions that take place in the park. Hidden in the park, there are museums, gardens, and exhibitions including: the International Center of Graphic Arts, the National Museum of Contemporary History, and the Botanical garden.

With a bright and contrasting color, the sculpture is an open, clear and structurally dynamic form that explores the possibility of motion in the environment, while this movement itself is present as a natural environmental process. In a somewhat Calderian approach, the idea represents the blooming of a frame through five different phases. With it's form, this dynamic sculpture stimulates the interest of pedestrians and invites them to pass through.

I don't find it kitsch. I really like the shape of it. Please R come with arguments not just a simple word. Aestatical is ok, the proportion are good, even a color is ok and it has rithm and repetition in a good diagram, so I don't find it kitsch, maybe is not really architecture, but it is a good work of art.

agree with you at some point,but where's the context? they reused a structure created in 2007 for another place,since when architecture monuments and buildings are reusable?
IMO this looks like a s**t in the road...I hope they read this and never reuse old works!
