Opening Ceremony: July 8th, 7 p. m.    Curators: Maja Vardjan, Cvetka Požar, Katjuša Kranjc   Inside, in an interior, is where we spend most of our time. The interiors in which we live, work, and spend our leisure time have a profound impact on our daily routines, yet the interior is only rarely the focus of relevant professional discourse.   The exhibition The World Inside: Designing Modern Interiors, 1930–Today, is the first more extensive such effort in Slovenia to look at interiors as a subject of systematic research and evaluation. Rather than focusing on interior design the exhibition looks into the interior as a constituent part of architecture and society.   Interiors constitute a discipline that blends various practices related to the inside of a building and various forms of housing. It is an interplay between architecture, interior design, and product design. As a rule, interiors represent elements that create space and atmosphere, such as ...

THE COMMON IN COMMUNITY Seventy Years of Cooperative Centres as Social Infrastructure As we go through our daily routines we frequently overlook how important community is in our lives; we lose sight of our place within it, our relationships with other people, and how strongly this shapes our daily lives. But once this interaction is broken due to personal or social circumstances, it soon becomes obvious how much it is missed. It’s in times of economic, health or natural crises that indoor public community spaces suddenly become extremely important connective elements whose existence is crucial for the widest community.   The exhibition focuses on the Cooperative Centre – a multipurpose public building most often set in a rural context. In villages, small towns and suburban areas they serve as venues for various administrative, economic, social and cultural activities. The cooperative centre has a specific architectural typology, whose purpose is to create an indoor public ...

The Museum of Architecture and Design maintains a valuable and extensive collection of objects related to architecture, design and photography of the 20th and 21st centuries. The collections represent a relevant selection of objects, projects and documents that have shaped and co-create, still today, our everyday lives. These collections serve as sources of inspiration, ideas, concepts, even provocation for an array of researchers, and through their display they speak to a far wider audience. The exhibition is comprised of more than 200 exhibits representing both icons of Slovenian architecture and design as well as transitory products and objects presented to the public for the first time. The exhibition focuses on the relationship between the collection as a whole and its constituent parts. What constitutes a museum’s collection? What do its individual items, some of them unique, mean and what relationship do they have to both each other and to the whole? These relationships ...

Guided Tour of Fužine Castle for English Speakers

Castle Guided Tour / next event: 27. 6. 2021 / 11:00

Built on commission from the Khisl family in mid-16th century, Fužine Castle is the only remaining renaissance castle in Ljubljana. At the time of its construction it served as a proof of wealth, reputation and political powers of its first owners. The castle changed hands already at the end of the century and then several times over the subsequent periods, which was all reflected in its building structure. An important addition was the hydroelectric power plant which was built in 1897 to serve the Vevče paper mill. Still operative today, the power plant is a unique example of technical history. In 1984, Fužine Castle was declared a cultural monument, and has been dedicated to museum activities and managed by the Museum of Architecture and Design since 1990. The castle is located in the Fužine area which received its name after the ironworks (Slovene: fužine) that were once operative on the river Ljubljanica.   The castle tour for english speakers will be given on last ...
