Modern panorama of Ljubljana is part of transitional period and is, as such, dynamically changing. Different elements are a part of its architectural appearance - buildings, parks, infrastructure, permanent and temporary solutions for different uses, which are more or less integrated in a symbiosis, or are disturbers of aesthetic appearance.
The purpose of this master thesis is to study the attitude of citizens toward changes in time a space. As such were chosen two objects that were accepted with mixed emotions - RESIDENTIAL HOUSE GRADAŠKA (built in 2005) and CONDOMINIUM TRNOVSKI PRISTAN (built in 2003) and are works of SADAR + VUGA Architects bureau. SADAR + VUGA are interested in concepts that provide new impressions and create new social interaction and communication in society. Exactly these two buildings are a good example of provocative new age concepts, which are responsible for changes in social response. By providing that, they offer a potential for social interaction in the context of changes in a specific area or environment. The two buildings are just 300 meters apart and are placed in the suburban Trnovo area. However, they differ in architectural communication. Newly built houses have an impact not only on their surroundings but also widely in society. With all that on mind, some architects have been trying to change the society with form and design. Part of this master thesis is to study the intentions of SADAR + VUGA in designing the two houses and how they succeeded in impacting the society. Since some time has passed since the buildings were constructed, this gave us the opportunity to analyse how citizens of Ljubljana have accepted the buildings or how their minds have changed. Do they find the two buildings disturbing or were they disturbing only at the beginning when they offered a new perspective. Have the citizens gotten used to them, and did they change their mind. Have Sadar and Vuga succeeded in introducing a new perspective on modern architecture and did they change the people’s attitude towards it. All these questions are addressed in the study. More than with the architectural aspect, the study is concerned with educational impact of these two projects. Therefore, the focus is placed on the interaction between architecture and citizens; touching upon the ever topical question of delimiting what is private in public.
