Boštjan Vuga’s studio Giardini of Venice at Politecnico di Milano

Boštjan Vuga is invited to teach at Polytechnic University of Milan as the International Guest Professor. The studio will focus on RE-USE OF THE NATIONAL EXHIBITION PAVILIONS and will map the architectural qualities of the pavilions in the Giardini. Based on the re-use approach, design projects for the pavilions will be proposed, which aim to transform the Giardini in a all-year-round open, freely accessible, attractive neighbourhood of Venice.


Smichov Primary School

Our proposal for the new Smichov primary school is based on three starting points: first, the school interior is developed as a learning-scape, set between five deep walls with niches and cuts; second, the school has a dual character, permeable towards west and east, unveiling events in the school towards the public park and the sports ground, and porous, as a sequence of the deep walls towards south and north; third, primary school becomes a community center of the Smichov neighborhood.

Boštjan Vuga v pogovoru za Val 202 v včerajšnji oddaji K BETONSKI UTOPIJI? med drugim o inovativnosti arhitekture v bivši Jugoslaviji …

” /…/ Arhitektura 60ih in 70ih let je bila smatrana kot inovativna in priznana že v tistem času – s strani, recimo v francoskem L’Architecture d’Aujourd’hui ali The Architecture Review – arhitektura, ki si upa. Ki kaže na to “mi si upamo graditi”. Torej znotraj okolja, ki je bilo kljub vsemu bolj (gradbeno) zaprto, kot je zahodno okolje, so v bistvu arhitekti za to, da so naredili določeno stvar ali določen detajl, ki bi ga, če poenostavim, na zahodu kupili v trgovini, so si ga tukaj morali izmislit. In ker so si ga morali izmislit, je ta inovativnost prešla od koncepta do najmanjšega detajla. Zato je recimo na Miheličevi stolpnici na Bavarskem dvoru ta fasada enkraten produkt. To ni nekaj, kar kupiš iz kataloga, ampak je enkraten produkt. /…/ In to inovativnost je stroka oz. takratna produkcija, ki je stala za tem, tudi podprla.”

Boštjan Vuga Interview for Sirp: Unfinished architecture and adaptive use

Interview by Eve Komp

After holding a lecture for the department of architecture of Estonian Academy of Arts, Boštjan Vuga gave an interview for Sirp (Estonian Online Magazine) about the revitalization of abandoned constructions. After economic crises in 2009, Vuga has been interested in the state of unfinishedness and thinking about architecture as constant process.

Could it be possible to draw lines between abondoness in Estonia, given the fact that it has similarities with Slovenian recent history? And for example, what kind of solutions could be applied for empty Linnahall building?

Tina Hočevar for Ambienti TV Show on apartment renovation for which SADAR+VUGA received the prize for the private interiors for 2016

The apartment at Kongres square in Ljubljana is one of the most unusual. If we would like to briefly describe it, we should emphasize the PRONOUNCED DUALITY of this home – the larger part is a kind of industrial loft, and its opposite is the interpretation of the former bourgeois salon.
