Ever since Slovenia joined the European Union in 2004, Slovenian architecture has attracted considerable interest worldwide. The internationally recognized projects of recent years are distinguished in particular by their innovativeness and self-assured originality.
School construction, which has been a priority in Slovenia for decades, has acquired special significance as a result of the country’s economic upswing. The school buildings presented in the publication "Contemporary School Architecture in Slovenia" were all constructed after 1991, following the establishment of the Republic of Slovenia. In addition to the introduction by the two authors Maja Ivanic and Spela Kuhar, the book includes interviews on the subject with 8 architects. The historical perspective is conveyed in 6 essays, and the 35 documented projects are presented in pictures, diagrams and textual descriptions.
