The next instalment of Architectural Matters is about the current state of contemporary Slovenian architecture

The lecture series of the MOME Architecture Institute presents outstanding national and international architects, designers, and thinkers, who will provide a glimpse into their work around the built environment.

The curators of the Venice Architecture Biennale’s Slovenian Pavilion will be the next speakers of the Architectural Matters lecture series. The founders of the Vidic Grohar Arhitekti and the Mertelj Vrabič Arhitekti architect offices, and the associate of the Arhitekti Počivašek Petranovič office will present the current situation of contemporary Slovenian architecture in their lecture From the Sunny Side of the Alps (Slovenia) in a roundtable discussion. 
Vidic Grohar Arhitekti was founded in Ljubljana in 2016 by Anja Vidic and Jure Grohar. In their projects, the architects do not adhere to a predefined architectural system but seek to freely create innovative architectural, design, and curatorial solutions by reimagining specific situations.  
Mertelj Vrabič Arhitekti was established in 2015 by Maša Mertelj and Matic Vrabič.  The office has a diverse portfolio, ranging from small-scale objects to buildings.  They are best known for their renovation and exhibition design projects, many of which have been covered in Slovenian and international publications.  
Arhitekti Počivašek Petranovič was founded in Ljubljana in 2017 by Davorin Počivašek and Urban Petranovič. In each of their projects, the office rethinks the priorities, criteria, and various factors that influence our perceptions of quality of life.  A major focus of their work is study of the environment, exploration of various possibilities, framing of perspectives, adherence to local cultural landscapes, and reference to local architectural traditions, all of which come together to form a coherent architectural approach.  
The events of the Architectural Matters are free and open to the public. 
Further education credits for visiting the lectures are available from the Chamber of Hungarian Architects.

The event is sponsored by the Foundation for Moholy-Nagy University and Design as part of the Global Voices initiative and the Budapest Cervantes Institute.
