The father of Pannonian oaks

Atelje Ostan Pavlin / 2005

A mighty oak tree nearly a millennium-and-a-half-old called the “Father of Pannonian Oaks” was found alongside an oxbow lake of the Mura river and given a fascinating, but inexpensive roof-like shelter on the Apaško polje field. It symbolises the primeval nature of the motif while at the same time addressing modern construction principles. It is therefore both Pannonian (regional) and entirely, openly universal.
