The aim of our project is to accelerate urban pulse inthat area. In our proposal New UGM should be considered as a part ofeducational-cultural campus consisting of linked spots on the map of Maribor. Weexpand the design area, overlapping also marketplace and old UGM squaretreating them like one entire public space.
In the project we use idea of urban tissue,combination of open and closed spaces, using a scheme of mediaeval city. Allfunctions of UGM can find their counterparts in mediaeval city’s structure:city hall, shops, services, streets, courtyards, market.
Space of art - exhibition space is ‘sacrum’ of ourdesign –it takes a role of cathedral. This statement is expressed in the form –the exhibition rooms are placed in a lifted form which becomes a symbol of theNew UGM in Maribor’s panorama.
