FAP - Future Architecture Platform.MAO. Museum of Architecture and Design
MAO is opening the renovated courtyard of the renaissance Fužine Castle – with the intervention by Julio Gotor Valcarcel – thus entering a vibrant Summer season.
His idea is a simple, delicate proposal, according to the present reality of the castle and its use. In a nutshell, the intervention dialogues with these temporary layers which have shaped the reality of the castle, and their duration. The courtyard and corridors will be closed during the hottest months of the year: a series of retractable awnings allowing different positions depending on the programme. The proposal includes the use of curtains in the corridors next to the courtyard. A collection of flexible elements vegetation and furniture will be displayed.
As part of the exhibition We’re Renovating!!!, which draws attention to recent projects for adaptive re-use in Slovenia, Matevž Čelik, the director of Museum of Architecture and Design MAO and leader of the Future Architecture platform proposed a competition for architectural intervention in the Fužine Castle, where MAO is located.
