Project of central station in PodgoricaĐorđe Mrdak
, 2015, magistrsko delo
Opis: This Masterʼs Dissertation proffered the idea of designing a central station in
Podgorica. The idea was to create a facility that would be functional, connect urban sectors and become a landmark of the city. Podgorica is a rapidly developing city and it needs a modern central station which would integrate bus and rail stations, provide faster and safer connection, together with additional content. In the latter regard there would be a complex incorporating an administrative block, a spa hotel with restaurant, a conference centre and a shopping area. The building would have free form with transparency regarding public spaces. The aim would be that the passengers would have control over the trains and buses in arrivals and departures. The base of the skyscraper would be an ellipse that rotate and thereby would have an interesting elegant form that would dominate the city.

Penitentiary institution in BarMirko Mugoša
, 2015, magistrsko delo
Opis: This Master's Dissertation offers an idea for a new penitentiary institution in Bar. The idea is based on an analysis of the current situation in Montenegro, regarding the capacity and conditions in existing prisons. The results of these analyses pinpointed the location of the new facility, as well as the conceptual approach in design. The concept relies on new trends in designing of prison facilities that focus on rehabilitation rather than emphasizing punishment. Architects play an important role in creating such a space, where good design helps in improving society and serves them. A Penitentiary institution offers a unique space: specially designed prison cells, common areas for sports, education, religion and work, courtyards and spaces to interact with employees. Such an environment is used to achieve objectives such as rehabilitation and peaceful coexistence, promote human rights and enrich society, as well as to prepare prisoners for life after prison.

Educationa Park - Technical Academy MariborSamanta Rebernak
, 2016, magistrsko delo
Opis: The Educational Park - Technical Academy Maribor is a new concept with which we wish to enrich the city of Maribor. The main idea is to connect research and education with practical experience, start up companies and the production spaces of big companies. This broad content with multiple additions could be placed in the Business Industrial Zone Tezno, with certain modifications to the existing structures.
This thesis deals with the evolution of industrial architecture and especially its importance to the city of Maribor. We present an in depth historical analysis of the company TAM, the predecessor of today’s BIZ Tezno, which was one of the biggest factories with research facilities and educational spaces in the former Yugoslavia.
The urban master plan consists of the placement of the afore-mentioned content in the facilities of BIZ Tezno. The idea is to create an open, inviting space that would be a part of city life, with the addition of sports facilities, pool areas, a museum of industrial heritage, a concert hall, etc.
As a continuation of the master plan, we also designed an industrial architectural model that shows how the concept of the Educational park can be implemented in the facilities of an established company. We also contemplated the use of renewable materials and, therefore, used timber in the construction. The facility would be an addition to the brand image of any company that values sustainable development and progress.

Sustainable refurbishment of Martin Konšak Primary School in MariborHristijan Babuka
, 2016, magistrsko delo
Opis: The thesis tends to present a comprehensive approach for sustainable refurbishment of primary schools, treating Martin Konšak Primary School in Maribor as a case study. The first part provides theoretical framework in which understanding of the sustainable refurbishment of schools is formed. Moreover, energy-efficient and sustainable principles of design are introduced. The following part deals with detailed analysis of the existing school. The investigation extends from site analysis - climate conditions, orientation, and urban context - to school building analysis, which includes an overview of the history and the current situation of the school, architectural evaluation, and energy analysis, resulting in summarizing the advantages and disadvantages of the existing building. The final part synthesizes the knowledge and proposes a final design solution for sustainable refurbishment of the school. The refurbishment concept involves renovation or demolition of particular elements and extension of the building's volume. Furthermore, it covers energy-efficient design principles and passive and active strategies to reduce energy consumption of the building and improve its environmental performance. The thesis concludes with simulations of building's energy use before and after the refurbishment.

Hydroelectric powerplant Kablić - Impact on the environment and spatial developmentLjubomir Mioč
, 2017, magistrsko delo
Opis: Hydro energy is simply energy that is taken from water and converted into electricity. The most common method of producing energy from water is taking place in hydropower plants. These facilities represent industrial architecture where water coming down through an area causes turbines to rotate and the energy is captured to run a generator. When creating a hydropower plant for producing hydropower, in some cases, areas must be flooded, which largely affects spatial development during the planning process. In the 21st century, people are becoming increasingly interested in obtaining electricity through hydro potential, especially since water is a clean and renewable source of energy that does not emit toxins and does not pollute the environment. Due to this fact, hydroelectric plants are becoming places of education and receive more visitors, which is developing a new branch of sustainable tourism.

Youth centre ZenicaArnesa Kobić
, 2016, magistrsko delo
Opis: This master thesis proposes a design project of the Youth centre Zenica and its urban surrounding, based on the theoretical research and urban and architectural analysis of the city of Zenica. According to the research, Zenica represents a cultural and educational centre but does not offer an appropriate facility for studying and entertainment of its citizens, especially the youth. Furthermore, the urban analyses showed that the selected urban site represents a specific urban setting and challenging urban and architectural task. As a solution, this master thesis proposes the extension of the city cafe Gradska kafana and its transformation into the Youth centre Zenica with all the necessary contents. The idea is complemented by the redesign of the urban site and connection with other parts of the city. As a result, the planned urbanism, creative architecture, and studied program are to provide for a long-term use of the building and the urban site, enrichment of the social and cultural life of the city and an opportunity for the formation of the new city centre.

The field trip as part of spatial (architectural) design art classesJanja Batič
, 2011, izvirni znanstveni članek
Opis: Spatial (architectural) design is one of five fields introduced to pupils as part of art education. In planning architectural design tasks, one should take into consideration the particularities of the architectural design process and enable pupils to experience space and relationships within space through their own movement. Furthermore, pupils should have an opportunity to play the roles of (critical) users as well as co-creators or spatial planners. In this respect, the field trip plays a vital role, as it allows pupils to experience (architectural) space through their own movement, their senses and in a real environment. The architectural experience that the pupilsgain differs from their everyday experience of moving through space, as the former is based on education and training, and thus helps pupils develop architecture appreciation.

, 2005, izvirni znanstveni članek
Opis: An architectural analysis of a fruiting branch in the Slovenian variety 'Elit' was conducted during three successive years. The fruit bearing branch was constructed of a three-year-old parent shoot plus all corresponding two-year-old shoots and annual shoots (1Y). The construction of the bearing branch during the time caused a statistically significant increase in the number of annual shoots. The basal diameter and the length of 1Y significantly depended on a year whereas their angles did not. In spite of decreasing length of 1Y, the number of vegetative buds per shoot increased from the first to the third year of observations. The number of nodes was closely correlated with the length of the shoots. Activity points on the 1Y were most often on the apical two or three nodes, what was expressed by a marked acrotony. The number of active points varied as the tree matured. The ratio fruit bearing 1Y ž total 1Y was 0.47 in year 1; 0.18 in year 2; 0.74 in year 3. It points to the slightly alternance. As the tree grew the number of flowering buds per 1Y as well as the number of female flowers per 1Y increased. The results of the three-year-long research show some growth and development rules in the walnut cultivar 'Elit', however, they do not allow a reliable prediction of the following activities. We assume that this will be possible after another three-year-long analysis, with the help of the Hidden Mark Model.
