‘Trimo Urban Crash’ has announced its winners from this year’s installation competition which challenged students to design a public architectural installation for Nove Fužine, a specific residential neighborhood in Ljubljana, Slovenia using Trimo materials.  The theme for this year is: The Life Stand – an architectural intervention which is more than a tribune for watching games or events. It is a point of interaction and inspiration for inhabitants and visitors of all ages, interests and social standing, and simultaneously offering an answer to complex architectural and social questions common to many European urban residential areas with its original and well-thought out approach. Read on for the winning projects from the competition.

Symposium: Not More, Not Less

With regard to its immanent powers, architecture today seems to be both under-challenged and over-charged at the same time. This biomorphic paradigm has reduced architecture’s potential to just dealing with issues concerning geometry, form-making, and manufacturing, whilst depriving it of any political impact. On the other hand, there is a programmatic notion of practice which reduces architecture to a predominantly political project, ignoring the fact that a building must eventually embody its contents through its tectonic and formal definition. The MAO symposium features four international architects and one architectural critic and curator discussing how they deal with these issues in their work Jacob van Rijs, MVRDV, Rotterdam; Mark Lee, Johnstonmarklee, L.A.; Duncan Lewis, Scape architecture, Bordeaux; Jörg Leeser, BeL, Cologne as well as Philip Ursprung, Chair of Architectural History and Theory, ETH Zurich. The symposium has been curated and will be moderated by Ilka & Andreas Ruby, textbild/RUBY PRESS, Berlin. For more information on the symposium, click here.
