The International Big Architecture Festival presented by Zavod Big and Hiše Magazine is a one–day architectural conference which takes place annually in Ljubljana since 2008. Invited architects address thematic issues through presentations of their work, and through a dynamic dialogue. The 2010 festival on subject of Transformation hosted architects ARX Portugal Arquitectos (PT), and NL Architects (NL), among others. The theme for the 2011 Big Architecture conference is New Rules, New Responses, the exhibition features 'Houses of the World, while the 180˚ Stage presents What is a Way to a Good House?.

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.
