updated 4 days ago

The Architecture Museum of Ljubljana was established in 1972 by the Municipality of Ljubljana. In April 2010 the management of the museum was transferred from the city to the state. Under the new name the Museum of Architecture and Design (MAO) is the central Slovene museum for architecture, town planning, industrial and graphic design, and photography. Since 1992 the Museum is located at Fužine Castle.

Since 1972 the Secretariat of the Biennial of Design (BIO) (formerly known as Biennial of Industrial Design) operates under the aegis of the museum. In 2017 under the auspices of MAO, the Centre for Creativity was established in order to support Slovenia's cultural and creative sector (CCS).

In 2015 the MAO launched the Future Architecture Platform, with an aim of communicating the social, environmental, economic and design potentials of architecture to the widest possible audiences across Europe. The open call was open to architects as well as to urban planners, curators, landscape architects, designers, artists, filmmakers, etc. First the selected applicants presented their ideas at the February Matchmaking Conference at MAO where they pitched their ideas, afterwards the Future Architecture programme of exhibitions, conferences, lectures and workshops ran during 2016–2017 across Europe.

Since 2006, more than 50 cities around the globe have joined the global network, and no less than 130 writers and artists have found shelter in an ICORN member city thus contributing to the freedom of expression in a practical way. Writers who were persecuted in their homeland as a direct consequence of their creative activities, are offered a 2 year residency to continue with their work, involved in a network of local and international cultural programmes.

In Slovenia the residency is managed by the Department for Culture of the City of Ljubljana and the Ljubljana City Library, in cooperation with the Slovene PEN Centre.
