28.11.2013. Exhibiting architecture / Andreas Ruby’s lecture / Podgorica

Since we were all in Podgorica for our GH Fjord presentation and team reunion, Andreas was kind enough to give a lecture for architects and especially architecture students. The lecture was imagined as a way of continuing the didactical program of Kotor APSS. In a series of interesting examples Andreas made a clear statement  - “You cannot really exhibit architecture”.

27.11.2013. GH Fjord presentation / Podgorica

All the bits and pieces of our GH Fjord booklet came to an end and were finally printed, packed and ready to be presented at the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism. The team of 4 – Dijana Vucinic, Bostjan Vuga, Simon Hartmann and Andreas Ruby presented the topic: Grand Hotel Fjord, an abandoned structure in the prominent location at the very end of Kotor Bay that is to be reanimated into Grand Hotel Fjord – a case study for sustainable and forward-leaping touristic development.

after APSS: Ljubljana and Bazel meetings

Our work, considering the topic – Grand Hotel Fjord, never actually stopped. Soon after the workshop ended, between numerous  skype meetings there came time for live meetings  - first Ljubljana, than Bazel. The goal was to develop a GH Fjord location Study that will clearly visualize potentials of this remarkable building. The project is to be presented to the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism, Montenegro.
