HISTORY OF THE
FUTURE - CASE STUDY BLED
Bled is a
true learning example of building through history. Due to its exceptional
natural features, it was always exposed to various external influences and
ambitions. All political systems, rulers, politicians and wealthy people wanted
to change it into their ‘playground’, eager to leave their mark. Today Bled is
the sum of many collective and individual visions built on its banks, our
mental picture of the place in constant discrepancy with the real image.
proposed by the architecture students of Prof. Jurij Sadar’s design studio is limited
to publicly owned areas, such as the Grajsko kopališče public lido, Pristava, Lake
Promenade, Ljubljanska Road, the large car park near Prešernova Street, and the
public spaces that are designed to host cultural activities and events. We
believe that the cultural program is lacking in Bled and that it is a strategic
tool that could revive and enrich the entire space. Students have proposed and
designed projects that comply with the latest urban development guidelines, in
particular the construction of the north and the newly envisaged south bypass
roads. The latter is supposed to relieve the traffic-laden southern lake
promenade, offering the possibility for the rehabilitation of
landscape-sensitive lakeside banks.
