A few days ago the Croatian architecture scene amazed us with their pavilion for the Venice Biennale. And there’s more coming from this country: House of Tolerance, a 4 week international workshop at the School of Architecture in Split, Croatia, has been announced. The workshop is open to students and young professionals (up to 35 years old), and will result in the new House of Tolerance for the city. The winning proposal from the workshop will be proposed to the city mayor, to build the first stage of the project.

The workshop directed and taught by Hvroje Njiric (watch his interview with ArchDaily) and Emil Sverko.

Croatian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale

Based on the idea of Mirage, described at the wikipedia as a naturally occurring optical phenomenon in which light rays are bent to produce a displaced image of distant objects or the sky, the team that designed the Croatian Pavilion for the Venice Biennale decided to create a floating pavilion to present arts and architecture of Croatia at the Venice Biennale.

Following the same principles of a Fata Morgana, which is an unusual and very complex form of Mirage that can be seen in a narrow band right above the horizon, the Floating Pavilion is constructed on an existing barge with dimensions of 10m x 20m x 3m. It is designed by a group of 14 leading Croatian architects, who have made the recent Croatian architecture visible on the global scene. Instead of working in the usual formats of their practices and presenting speculative projects, they decided to work together on a single proposal and to have it constructed and towed toward its final destination in Venice right away. The pavilion structure is the barge’ cargo, welded from 30 tons of Q385 wire mesh in more than 40 layers of varying contours. The cargo presented here maps the process of intense interaction between architects working on the common project, their collaboration with the Croatian maritime industry, and the extraordinary act of architecture it produced. Please follow the pavilion’s maiden voyage across the Adriatic over here

Split Talks 2010

12:30 - 10 June, 2010

The theme of this year’s Split Talks is the relationship of Tourism, Croatia’s primary economic driver, and its relation to local planning legislation as well as notions of sustainability internationally. The current slow-down in development caused by the world economic crisis as well as the impending entry of Croatia to the European Union raise important new questions, problems, and opportunities for design professionals. These issues will be explored through a series of case studies provided by guest lecturers and university faculty and through a series of round tables.

AD Interviews: 3LHD

10:30 - 2 February, 2010

My first encounter with the new breed of Croatian architects was with 3LHD, a young firm ran by Sasa Begovic, Marko Dabrovic, Tanja Grozdanic and Silvije Novak. The partners got together while still students at the Zagreb Architecture School in 1994, and thanks to the croatian competition system they were able to do their first public works, starting with the Memorial Bridge in Rijeka (1997). After that, the firm has been involved in several public works such as a stone Sports Hall in Bale, the Spaladium Center in Lora, and their latest realizations: Zamet Center in Rijeka and the Dance Center in Zagreb. In these projects, 3LHD has been able to develop new shapes that relate to a young nation.
