Conceived as the Faculty of Agriculture and Life and Sciences building at the University of Maribor, Slovenian, Styria architects have taken the exterior fabric as a vertical ground section, interrupted by large glass surfaces which establishes the contact of the interior with the exterior green space.
A transparent extension of the facility with subordinate proportions is stratified by a light gap, placed in such a manner that at an appropriate distance from the existing castle forms a platform through the facade breaks – the square below the bell tower which is supplemented by a water motive, an open air classroom and micro-urban equipment.
The extension in the northern part of the castle hompos is expressed quite differently: it is a completely different interpretation of an architectural intervention, whereas a hybrid of the landscape becomes opposed to the monumentality of the building.
A direct contact with nature and intertwining environment shapes a cut-out landscape carpet, where a transformed green meadow becomes a roof, replacing its topographic profile.
