How to search for opportunities among small scale projects, competitions and new collaborations.
In planning we are always considering the existing edge conditions, prevalent problems, possible opportunities and we try to find the viable changes in built environment, that would somehow make everything work out. Not much is different trying to make the projects run smoothly, sending in competition entries on time and getting new commissions. What remains challenging is how to find a way to jump between detail and urban project, from discussing details to considering many years of undefined urban development, and at the same time trying to establish a guiding line in practice. Blaž Babnik Romaniuk is the founder and works at Obrat d.o.o., an architectural and urbanistic office from Ljubljana with ever changing constellations of collaborators. In trying to establish his practice, he is mainly preoccupying himself with small scale projects and urban planning. He and his team are the winners of Europan 13 in Vienna and Runners-up in the following Europan session.
