Webtipp! RogLab – Rog Centre Pilot Project Ljubljana

RogLab is conceived as a production, educational and presentation space in a 30 m²‑container object in Ljubljana. It is dedicated to activities in the fields of architecture, design and contemporary art, their mutual connecting and cross-sector collaboration (education, science,  economy,  environment, space…) as well as international networking.

The integral part of RogLab is the  3D Workshop offering technology and services for rapid prototyping, supporting creativity and stimulating professional development in the three targeted fields.

RogLab’s programme orientation is focused on offering production tools; stimulating creative use of 3D technologies; enabling interdisciplinary collaboration as well as research and innovation-oriented creativity; bolstering connections between creative activities and business; developing projects that deal with pressing issues in urban environments and address current challenges in architecture and design with the emphasis on social and environmental responsibility.

RogLab is open to a wide spectrum of users – students and professionals in the fields of design, architecture and visual arts, and companies, innovators, researchers, …

The RogLab programme is based on collaboration with companies and NGOs, as well as cultural, research and educational institutions. The  partner network  provides the implementation of the planned programme and activities, the optimal usage of the established public cultural infrastructure, the inclusion of the widest possible circle of professionals and the general public. At the same time, it enables the transfer of know-how, experience and complementing infrastructure, as well as the synchronisation of activities within the partner network.

RogLab is a pilot investment for the future Rog Centre, which is unfolding within the frame of the European project Second Chance. The project is connecting five cities – Nuremberg, Leipzig, Venice, Krakow and Ljubljana – in a collaboration on transforming former industrial zones into cultural and creative spaces.
