SYMPOSIUM | About the Phenomenon of Roundabouts
23 October 2018 | 14:00

In recent years, roundabouts have become a very visible part of the public space. The buildings and sculptures in their centers have started to significantly influence the image of places in Slovenia as well as elsewhere in Europe.


14 local experts from the fields of spatial planning, social sciences and arts will talk about the phenomenon of roundabouts during short 10-minute lectures to initiate a public debate about their role in public spaces with a concluding keynote lecture by guest lecturer Miguel Álvarez Martínez.
