Since its beginning in 2001 the international architectural symposium Days of Oris in Zagreb has become the biggest event of this type in Central Europe, providing insight into a wide range of recent architectural research and practices. A two-day symposium is organised by Arhitekst Publishing Company and its Oris Magazine, and is held on the last weekend in October in Zagreb, Croatia, when the whole city of Zagreb is imbued with creativity. Some of the thematic one-day lectures are also held in Ljubljana, Dubrovnik, and Belgrade.

"Belgrade Days of Oris" kicked off in May 2010 with Winy Maas (NL), Jordi Badia (ES), Martin Lejarraga (ES), de Architekten Cie (NL-HR), and Branislav Mitrović (SR).


The conference is unique not only by the exquisite choice of eminent contemporary architects, who show their point of view of architecture, design and culture through lectures and visual presentations, but also for the number of architects and architecture students attending lectures. The event filled with enthusiasm and passion has thus established itself as a gathering place for the regional architectural scene.

Besides presenting major world achievements Days of Oris aims to show and promote local contemporary architecture, presenting the leading figures from the Slovene and Croatian architectural scenes. The increasing number of visitors shows the impact the conference has in its promotion of contemporary architecture, attracting much attention from the professional and wider public.


In October 2009 Days of Oris hosted Aaron Betsky, Edouard François, Fernando Menis, Ofis Arhitekti, Ellen S. de Vibe, Jensen & Skodvin, Snøhetta, Studio Up, Smiljan Radic, Helena Paver Njirić, Rudy Ricciotti, Junya Ishigami, Hans Hollein, and SANAA with Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa. In October 2008 David Adjaye, Steven Holl, Peter Ebner, Sami Rintala, Lebbeus Woods, Igor Franić, Dekleva Gregorič Arhitekti, Mansilla + Tunon arquitectos, Smiljan Radic, The next ENTERprise, and Annette Gigon from Gigon/Guyer architects showed their work at the grand event in Zagreb.

Ljubljana Days of Oris presented Rintala Eggertsson architects, Bevk Perović Arhitekti, Mathias Klotz, Hrvoje Njirić, and Delugan Meissl Associated Architects in April 2009 at the Cankarjev dom, Cultural and Congress Centre. Winy Maas, Querkraft, WSP, STUDIO UP, and Tomaž Krušec from ARK Arhitektura Krušec were featured at the event in 2008. In 2006 3LHD, Wolfgang Tschapeller, Caramel architekten, Elias Torres, and Maruša Zorec gave lectures.

A special Days of Oris event has also featured architects from other countries. In May 2009, "Portugal Days of Oris" took place in Zagreb and Dubrovnik with architects Alvaro Siza, Eduardo Souto de Moura, Cristina Guedes + Francisco Vieira de Campos, Nuno Brandăo Costa, and Joăo Luís Carrilho da Graça. Prior to that, "Finnish Days of Oris" happened in May 2005 with Heikkinen-Komonen Architects, Severi Blomstedt, Juha Leiviskaä, and JKMM.
