Past Events

Since 1997 the Architects' Society of Ljubljana (DAL) represents the professional interests of about 370 members, primarily in debates with relevant state and municipal governmental structures. The professional association of architects and other citizens offers current information about local and international bids, competitions, prizes, educational events, and legal advice. The DAL is a founder of the renowned Plečnik Award, granted annually by the Plečnik Fund. Since 1972 it has also published Architects' Bulletin (ab), an international magazine on architecture and architectural theory.

From 2007 the Architects' Society of Ljubljana office functions as the headquarters of the revived Union of Slovene Architects' Societies.

Exhibitions and projects

Every two years DAL presents projects of its members at the exhibition Arhitektura–Inventura [Architecture–Stocktaking] that takes place at Cankarjev dom.

A critical view on the development of the city Ljubljana is presented with the series of exhibitions and lectures named Visions. The fifth edition was organised at the Kresija Gallery in November 2009.

In 2006 DAL launched the project "20th Century Architectural Heritage" in collaboration with the TrajekT, Institute for Spatial Culture in order to promote and protect modern monuments. Blue and white information plates (containing information on the name of the building, its authors, and a year of the construction) that are used worldwide for marking cultural heritage were placed at each selected property, indicating that it has been included in the campaign.
