project Stopiče Sports Hall, Stopiče near Novo mesto, Slovenia
written by Matevž Čelik


The sports hall in the small village of Stopiče proves that architecture is at least as much fieldwork as intellectual work in a studio. A studio is a space for ideas and enthusiasm, the field is a space for reality. Facing elements in space which will be taken up by future building maybe sometimes seems too banal, but nevertheless, in terms of the final product, a real reaction can be helpful in order to make a more immediate relationship of a building to its environment.
