SADAR+VUGA Architects – Glimpse Of 2019

Through determination and sheer hard work, the goal of SADAR+VUGA continues to show you all that architecture can be diverse, innovative, democratic, intentionally imperfect to the point of even occasionally awkward.

SADAR+VUGA wish to inspire every generation to engage with their environment, to never stop questioning and never-ever stop imagining.

Documentary film Sadar+Vuga XX

Focus of Sadar+Vuga XX documentary by director Damjan Kozole is the design process behind one of the most influential Slovenian architectural studios of the new generation, Sadar+Vuga.

Documentary film Sadar+Vuga XX

The documentary Sadar+Vuga XX explores the production and communication of the Slovenian architectural firm Sadar+Vuga established by Jurij Sadar and Boštjan Vuga in Ljubljana in 1996. Individual reflections and talks with Slovenian and foreign architects, architectural critics and policy-makers, combined with overviews of the firm’s extensive archives and visits to their largest realisations, document the diverse architectural production with which the architects consistently employ to seek out the new in architecture.

Sadar+Vuga XX (2017) trailer eng from Vertigo Ljubljana on Vimeo.

The film leads viewers chronologically through the firm’s four distinct periods. It begins with the founding of Sadar+Vuga in the transtitional mid-1990s, a period open to political, social and architectural change, then through a time of growth and economic crisis, culminating with the never fully realised project for the Sports park Stožice, the career achievement that really wasn’t.

It was decided that the main intervention should be one that would serve the city and its residents, a social activator that would represent today’s changing conditions. Through analysis and local consultation it was determined that trying to complete the existing megastructure would not work as such a project would be suited to a city more than ten times Nikšić’s size.

The Intercity project is located at large area within the development area next to the new main railway station (Hauptbahnhof) in Vienna. Because of its location, the Intercity Project will become the first contact a visitor will have with the city of Vienna.

Sports Park Stožice
The Sports Park Stozice is a hybrid project. Its realization is the result of the public/private partnership between the city of Ljubljana and Grep Development Company.
The 187,500 sqm complex is located north of the city and combines a football stadium and a multipurpose sports hall with a large shopping centre covered by a recreational park landscape. The park, visibly the largest open space, links the landscape by the river Sava, across the northern sections of the outer ring road, with the green urban space in the city centre.
