On June 23, 2001, in the residential neighborhood of Fužine in Slovenia, Ljubljana, Trimo officially handed over a public architectural installation “Life Stand” – the winning project of the Trimo Urban Crash competition for students of architecture and design which was created by Polish students, Wojciech Nowak from an architectural faculty in Gliwice, and Martynika Bielawska, from an art and design academy in Wroclaw.

“Life Stand” is the result of the Trimo Urban Crash competition, which encourages a creative transformation of the urban environment with the help of advanced building materials and technologies.  The creative workshop was held by Professor Cyril Shing from the Chelsea College of Art and Design, University of Arts, London who also served as the mentor for the finalists. The event was opened by the General Manager of Trimo, Tatjana Fink, and the Deputy Mayor of Ljubljana prof. Janez Koželj.
