The Municipality of Maribor under supervision of UIA (Union Internationale des Architectes, Paris) calls for the international, public, anonymous architecture competition for the new building of the UGM / Maribor Art Gallery. With this competition the UGM and Municipality of Maribor would like to acquire architecture proposal for the building, which will become the leading contemporary cultural centre, the engine of the urban regeneration of the Drava embankment and an example of sustainable architectural planning. The new building is planned to be completed by 2012, when Maribor will hold the title ‘European Capital of Culture’. The proposals for the New Maribor Art Gallery will be judged by Director of Tate Liverpool Christoph Grunenberg (UK) and architects Peter L. Wilson (AUS), Jürgen Hermann Mayer (GER), Hrvoje Njirić (CRO), Stojan Skalicky (SLO), Matevž Čelik (SLO), Marko Studen (SLO).

The New UGM building is going to host a collection of Slovenian modern and contemporary visual art, present national and international contemporary art exhibitions and offer heterogeneous programmes for all generations. The vision of the New UGM is to develop as an open institution with high-level content, to be a driving force of knowledge and creativity and a juncture point of creative activities as a destination for the whole family.

Within the framework of the competition, the applicants have to elaborate an architectural solution for the New UGM complex and a town planning solution for the North-West part of the building plot. The architectural solution for the New UGM includes besides the central gallery spaces (8000m2) the Architectural Centre (500 m2), Children’s Museum (700 m2), Center of Creative Industries (1200 m2), Museum Café (650 m2), open outdoor space (1500 m2) and an underground garage.

The International Architecture Competition under the title ‘European Capital of Culture 2012 – River Drava 2012’ unifies three tendering tasks for the projects: 1) The New Maribor Art Gallery (UGM) with 14.800 m2; 2) Rejuvenation of the river Drava embankments; and 3) The new foot bridge over the river Drava, adjacent to the historic Old Bridge. The participants can apply for the first, second, third or all three of the projects. We are looking forward to March 2010 when proposals by architects from all over the globe will arrive.
