UGM ART GALLERY IN MARIBOR, SLOVENIA
Honourable mention, 2010
The plot of New UGM is located in a heart of city and has an important linkage with historic city and new promenade along Drava river. The plot is well exposed from other side of the river and affects the current city panorama. The terrain inclination towards river Drava has a key importance designing new museum in a historic setting. The New UGM building is contemporary and attractive cultural center for every inhabitant and guest of Maribor. The dynamic bouquet of linear volumes is a dense composition of Maribor historic city scale volumes while providing flexibility and diversity for exhibition spaces within building. Inclined roof structure allows maximum use of North orientated natural light.
