On Saturday, 10 September 2016 at 1 p. m. the exhibition of all 100 printed issues of Oris magazine for architecture and culture of living will open.
Oris’ publishing history includes both Croatian and Slovenian magazine editions and a series of books produced by Oris House of Architecture. The print of the 100th issue of Oris is considered worthy of a special celebration. The first issue of Oris was published on 2 March 1999 and the company opened a year earlier. We consider ourselves to be of legal age!
I was once asked how I would position and distinguish Oris within the global field of architectural institutions. The answer is simple: globally, there are not many other institutions that would, in a comparably competent and content-minded manner, promote and comment the development of architecture through reflection such as Oris does. The Oris magazine, the Days of Oris, the exhibitions and all their other activities contribute to the promotion of and content-related reflections on contemporary architecture. It is a true house of architecture, an archetypal hut, from which it all starts.
Dietmar Steiner, director of the Architekturzentrum Wien
