The project for the New National and University Library of Slovenia became the opportunity to integrate this facility to the urban and cultural context of the capital Ljubljana. Our proposal for the new national library of Slovenia is a three-headed structure like the symbol of the Slovenian Nation: The Triglav Mountain.
The lower levels of the building are publicly accessible and integrated the archaeological site. The upper levels accommodate the functions of the library.
