In 2008 under the title Selling Architecture that Sells the conference introduced the Nordic perspective on quality commercial design, with internationally renowned architects holding lectures, among them Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter (DK). The 2009 event entitled Sustainable Excellence explored the relationship between quality design, innovation, sustainability, creativity, and responsibility.
Since 2009 an exhibition of the world's best residential buildings forms a part of the Big Architecture Festival; in 2010 the exhibition was showcased outside, in the old city centre near the river Ljubljanica. The Hiše Awards for Innovative Excellence in Private Housing were granted to the best individual house at the closing ceremony.
