Images of the Square
Gallery Galženica, Velika Gorica
Curators: Mihaela Richter and Ana Kovačić
Designers: Nina Bačun, Roberta Bratović
The main objective of the project Images of the Square was to redefine the social and economic functions of the square, to activate various checkpoints and create a link between the Cultural Center Galženica, which includes a gallery, a library and a theatre, and the Stjepan Radić Square. The project relies on the idea that public space needs to be socially, culturally and politically produced, and not only physically built. The primary goal of the project is to motivate local residents of all ages to rethink the public space of the square and to emphasize and raise awareness of the existence and program of the Cultural Center Galženica, which many residents are unfamiliar with.
The main task of the call for preliminary design proposals was to rethink the space of the Stjepan Radić Square and its mobiliary, by communicating the cultural content in the square in an innovative way through detecting and devising information points and signalization solutions for the Cultural Center Galženica in public space.
We believe it is important that preliminary designs include sustainable design, that is, the use of recycled and eco-friendly materials as much as possible in the intervention proposal.
