The medieval city centre of Ljubljana is largely conditioned with the heritage of famous local architect J. Plecnik. Is there any space for the reprogramming of the monumental area, including the riverbank?
Four city squares, a new city market house and the pedestrian bridge with the programmed river bank is proposed above the underground parking.
The site is dominated with the monumental arches, which are used as a main structural device and space-forming organisation for the materialisation of the new buildings.
The new riverbank is converted into the habitable promenade with public and commercial services.
