On Our Shelves Now
The Slovenian/Serbian duo of Matija Bevk and Vasa J. Perović are the focus of this issue, which details nineteen projects. An interview with the architects and an essay by Ivan Rupnik, provides insight into understanding their work from their own perspective of conditionalism. “All we find are conditions,” state the architects, attributing the phrase to the early thinking of Mies van der Rohe and the embracement of the multiplicity of conditions faced by architects in modern times. Among the projects included are the Congress Centre Brdo, the Schrottenturm Office Complex, Social Housing Polje, the Islamic Religious Centre in Ljubljana and several private houses.
