The National Gymnastics Centre Pegan Petkovšek, designed by Enota, is part of the comprehensive renovation of Svoboda Sports Park in . It is the first of the three sports halls that are to be built on the western edge of a belt between an access street on one side and a large greened park layout with sports grounds on the other. The building of the gymnastics centre is placed on the northernmost part of this belt. The northern and western edge of the building reference the building line regulated by the spatial acts, which also stipulate the greatest built ratio and the height of the building. The strict urban regulations necessitate a very compact design that allows for little deviation.

Lada Hršak

This year, on Thursday 19 May, Ljubljana becomes the centre of architecture. The international symposium of architects Ljubljana Days of Oris is bringing to Ljubljana, for the fifth time, contact with cities worldwide and the contemporary world architectural scene. The symposium is conceived as a series of lectures by renowned architects. Through lectures and visual presentations they express their visions of architecture, design and culture in order to present their country of origin.

At the same time they present problems faced in the realization of their work, and make a comparison to the current situation in our environment. Because of the audience’s already traditional enthusiasm, this symposium was visited last year by more than 600 people. This year, Ljubljana Days of Oris will present the following globally renowned names from the world of architecture: Miha Kajzelj (), Lada Hršak (/Netherlands), Heinz Tesar (Austria) and Mansilla+Tuñón (Spain). The organizers of the event are ORIS House of Architecture and Association Trajekt. For more information click here.

Herman’s Square / Arhimetrics + Enota

Herman’s Square, the new business residential building by Arhimetrics + Enota, is located at an important location in the old city centre in Celje. The land intended for construction is a part of a larger degraded non-built up area, which was somewhat forgotten for decades and exempt from the development of the city. Through the years a very heterogeneous structure evolved around this “wound” in the urban tissue, which was untouched for a long time.  It is now surrounded by a range of modern construction in an area that has extensive open space intended for a future park along the Savinja River.

More on this project after the break.
