In the nineties we stepped into the information era. The flow and manipulation of information decisively influenced our way of living. Our living patterns have changed drastically over the past twenty years, an individual may have several homes or none, there is an appearance of new types of families and dwelling units.
Prof. dr. Aleš Vodopivec, architect, publicist and professor at the Faculty of architecture; Aljoša Dekleva, architect and co-founder of the architectural studio Dekleva Gregorič; and mag. docent Vaso Perović, architect and co-founder of Bevk Perović architects, discussed about the ways in which architecture has changed and to what extent had it been able to adjust to the new forms of living. The discussion was moderated by assistant at the Faculty of architecture, Jure Grohar.
The conversation in the homestead was followed by the opening of the exhibition MOBILE LIVING UNITS, which consists of works done by the students of the Ljubljana Faculty of architecture during the course of an architectural workshop.
The outcomes of the workshop, which is a result of a collaboration between the company Riko Haus and the Faculty of architecture, represent new solutions of wooden mobile living units that are adaptable to all seasons, climates, locations, and housing needs of an individual.
Our brief occasional stay in nature is a demand that the producers of mobile living units have not yet been able to successfully support with their supply. The students developed alternatives to the current generic living units that do not look up to the natural environment in which they are set and reproduce the forms and design of dwelling houses.
Taking part in the exhibition of works – executed under the mentorship of mag. docent Vaso Perović, assistant Anja Vidic and assistant Jure Grohar- are Nika van Berkel, Maja Omerzel, Sebastjan Stevčevski, Tadej Šadl, Kaja Todorovič, Miha Toplišek, Tadej Travnikar, Tadej Tratnik, Urška Urh, Tadeja Vidoni, Matic Vrabič, Boris Vranić and Mateja Železnik.
