Built in the main University area in Ljubljana, the New building for the Faculty of Mathematics is not a building in a standard sense of the word. It is, in fact, an addition, a three story slab built on top of the existing two story building, containing completely different programme.

The new building literally grows out of the old structure, but despite its dominant role it allows the old structure its independence and dignity. Being an edifice without the ‘ground floor’, the new building tries to develop the idea of public spaces of the school as series of transparent ‘rooms’, carved out of the building mass, hovering above the city.
