Ljubljana - first prize
The project involves the renovation and extending of the Auersperg Palace, which is located in the heart of the protected historical city centre. The palace and the plot have a very rich history dating from the prehistoric period to Roman and medieval times. Each era added something to the building. During the course of history the purpose of the palace changed several times, such that the existing organisation of the floor plan was not suitable for hosting a museum programme. The spaces were labyrinthine and disconnected. The competition entry suggested a spiral itinerary for the visitor through the exhibition spaces and proposed an added element to connect the wings of the palace.
