Location: ŠKUC Gallery
Project duration: March 2021 – March 2022
The exhibition was co-produced by the Center for Creativity, which operates at the Museum of Architecture and Design and supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia, the City of Ljubljana and the European Regional Development Fund.
After last year’s talks with architectural practices, the New Praxis, New Tools project continues with an exhibition that is on display at the Škuc Gallery in Ljubljana from 24 February to 31 March. We present the architectural practices of a2o2 architects, Architects Počivašek Petranovič, Elementarna, Emil Jurcan, Mertelj Vrabič Architects, Pazi! Park, Prostorož, svet vmes, Some Place Studio and Vidic Grohar architects chosen by curators Mika Cimolini and Matevž Čelik.
The project sheds light on the work of selected contemporary Slovenian architectural practices, interesting precisely because of the way they tackle architectural subjects and tasks. Today, architects are no longer only concerned with designing beautiful houses and interiors, but our range of tasks has outgrown that. Today, we are mediators between users and space, heritage custodians and spatial activists who solve complex organizational and spatial problems.
The project answers three key questions: what is the task of architecture today, what is the organizational model of modern architectural practice and how to present architecture to the public.
