Screening of the film SADAR+VUGA XX and talk with the architects
On Thursday, 21 September at 7pm, a documentary film titled SADAR+VUGA XX about the architectural bureau of the same name will be screened at Oris House of Architecture. After the screening, there will be a talk with architects Sadar and Vuga moderated by Oris’ editor Maroje Mrduljaš.
Documentary film SADAR+VUGA XX, directed by Damjan Kozole, explores the production of the Slovenian architectural office SADAR+VUGA, founded in 1996 by architects Jurij Sadar and Boštjan Vuga. Through their personal reflections, complemented with critiques by international architects, architectural critics and policy-makers, researching their massive archive and visiting their largest realisations, the film documents various themes of the office’s architectural communication and production as well as their never-ending quest for the ‘new’ in architecture.
The film follows four distinct periods in their production, starting in mid-90s, when times in the young republic were favourable to the changes in politics, society and architecture; continues through the period of fast economic growth and subsequent global financial crisis; and culminating in the never fully realised project for the Sports Park Stožice in Ljubljana - a climax which fails to reach its whole potential, followed by the reinvention phase of the office.
SADAR+VUGA was established by Jurij Sadar and Boštjan Vuga in Ljubljana in 1996.
Jurij Sadar graduated at the Faculty of Architecture in Ljubljana (1987), and worked as an independent architect until 1993. From 1993 to 1997 he worked as assistant professor at the same faculty. Jurij lectures at architectural schools, conferences and symposia in Slovenia and abroad. He is currently assistant professor at the Faculty of Architecture in Ljubljana.
Boštjan Vuga graduated from the Faculty of Architecture in Ljubljana (1992) and continued his post graduate studies at the AA School of Architecture in London. He regularly lectures at architectural schools, conferences, and symposia in Slovenia and abroad. He is currently guest professor at the Adip, TU in Berlin.
