Title

Regeneration of the city: The Tobacco factory in Ljubljana<br>More elaborate preparation, better order, success assured?

 

Abstract

The closure of the Tobacco factory, which was for 130 years one of the main city landmarks, offered numerous buildings needing safeguarding as cultural monuments but also vast surfaces in the immediate vicinity of the city centre. Furthermore, an excellent opportunity for expanding the city centre emerged. In July 2006 a competition was tendered for the area’s transformation. The solutions should rely on extant built qualities and provide new ones, which would in conjunction form a new urban quarter. The competition was won by Dekleva Gregorič arhitekti, who delivered a comprehensive vision for the “New Tobacco Factory” complex. They suggested a varied selection of places, from the area of renewed buildings with new, urban programmes, to the new hotel and congress centre tower, named “Square”. By successful further implementation steps in revitalisation Ljubljana could gain a case study of good practise in rehabilitation of derelict industrial buildings and areas, which could be applied to other areas still waiting for intervention.
