The exhibition of works by Zlatko Ugljen called Prelude will open on Thursday, 1 of December at 7 pm in Oris House of Architecture.
Zlatko Ugljen is an architect whose work has been marked by the continually masterful designing of space with tools that were chosen by minute reading of the space in which the architect works. In Oris House of architecture, Ugljen’s work will be presented through his plans, sketches and models that were a part of his working processes for the project of the White Mosque in Visoko (the projects was realized and later on awarded by Aga Khan Award for Architecture) and the competition entry for the cathedral in Mostar. These two works were created around the same time, but provide us with an insight into two completely different approaches to sacral spaces of two different religions. The works presented are valuable both as tools and as independent artefacts. Ugljen’s art thus becomes multifaceted and the opportunity arises for us to consider the means used to reach the final architectural project.
