The Bizarre Façade of Metelkova.
Currently considered as an autonomous social and cultural centre in the city of Ljubljana. Formerly, the site was a military headquarter of the Army of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, then it became the Slovenian headquarter of the YNA -Yugoslav National Army.
In 2005, Metelkova was declared a national cultural heritage site in Slovenia, prevented from being part of an alternative economic development and from attempts for densification and rehabilitation of the sector through urban planning.
Even though it is visually bizarre, Metelkova is defined as a well-organized community. There is no legal status for the site, and the type of urbanism we can find is totally informal.
