Cultural Centre of European Space Technologies

Bevk-Perović arhitekti, Dekleva Gregorič arhitekti, Ofis arhitekti, Sadar + Vuga / 2012

The Cultural Centre of European Space Technologies (KSEVT) was built on the location of the former local cultural centre. KSEVT is a part of a built settlement and also a part of a green system around Vitanje. Its design is inspired by the first geostationary space station (the habitable wheel) design, presented by Herman Potočnik Noordung in a 1928 book. The circular ground plan of the building bears an indirect reference to Noordung’s thoughts on the organization of space in the universal context. KSEVT will enhance its public role and will function as a generator of social, cultural and scientific activities. The centre was designed by four Slovene architectural offices.
