/ The Unbuild Series presents the works of well-known
Slovenian architects from the past as well as contemporary architectural
studios. The selection of buildings is not coincidental nor final - it includes
objects in which I have found a potential to rethink them through
the medium of photography.
Chosen architectural objects were reconstructed - the
result is something new, a new object, a new space, a new architecture: the
reality became a new reality. Simultaneously everything that is new carries the
moment of the old, in other words, the reality of built architecture, which
could be best seen through the detail, materiality or structural logic.
The new image therefore originates from the existing, in
the way that it establishes a distance from time and space. Even more, the
image is not just contemporary but could be understood in the full meaning of
the word contemporariness. It is connected with my own experience
and understanding of architecture; I was wondering how we experience
architecture in the two-dimensional form and how it could address us, to really
notice the building, to observe it and in the end, what is the most important –
to see it.
