The Architects' Association of the Dolenjska Region and Bela Krajina (DAD) was established in 1997. Its mission entails professional research and the promotion of the broad range of activities that feed into architecture and spatial planning in the Dolenjska region. Towards this end it organises exhibitions, workshops and public forums, offers consulting services, and publishes relevant tenders on its website.

The association actively cooperates with various stakeholders, including the Novo mesto Urban Municipality the Chamber of Engineers of Slovenia, the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage and the Faculty of Architecture, University of Ljubljana.

Noteworthy activities

The association organises a series of "square table" discussions where the public can discuss architecture with experts in the field. It occasionally sets up an architectural help centre that provides architecture advice to the general public.

The biennial Open Architecture exhibition presents the work of DAD members. The similarly titled Open Architecture 1900–2000 in the Urban Municipality of Novo Mesto was a visionary research project aimed at extensively documenting and assessing the architectural heritage of the city of Novo Mesto. The association collaborated closely with the municipality for this project.

The Society organised several events on the occasion of the anniversary of the late architect and academic Marjan Mušič (1904–1984).

International projects

Since 2014 the Architects' Society of Dolenjska Region and Bela Krajina has organised a Jane's Walk in Novo mesto. The international Jane's Walk project, named after renowned urban theorist Jane Jacobs (1916–2006), organises volunteer-led walking tours aimed at deepening residents' bonds with the cities in which they live, work, and play.
