Ljubljana, as a “new” European city, is searching for development strategies to move toward a European milieu. Architecture and urban planning should uphold this ambition, presenting new values and methods for planning, programming, “management” and construction of a new European Ljubljana. The city government and developers engaged many local and international experts in the task of creating a vision for a new Ljubljana. This should culminate in the presentation of a new general master plan and all strategic projects for the upcoming period, when it will be possible to use EU cohesion funds to the fullest. Recently a new city government assumed office in Ljubljana, headed by the agile Mayor Jankovič and Deputy Mayor Koželj, an authority on architecture and urban planning.
