Waterfront redevelopment has been part of the most important architectural and urban-planning projects since the 1990s, representing a central issue in EU spatial-planning policy. Various coastal areas were studied in terms of their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. The findings of this study provide the basis for detailed, comprehensive, and versatile prediction of coastal transformations in the northeastern part of what used to be Izola Island. The location—with its protected natural and cultural heritage sites and industrial activity, some of which remains in operation and some partially abandoned—is under great capital pressure. Slovenian and foreign investors are seeking permission to build three islands in the Viližan Bay and a large tourist resort along the coast. If this plan were implemented, Izola would be entirely different; it would become the largest Slovenian seaside resort. New proposals of ideas and designs for the eastern part of Izola are presented with their basic building blocks (points, lines, and zones) in comparable ground-plan representations and 3D displays.

Paper introduces a novel approach to understanding the complex information and logics of urban spaces by the non-professional public. A model for Interpretation of Qualities in Urban Space (aMIQUS) is proposed. The objectives were threefold: first, to form common, valid and applicable measures to assess features of space design, second, to indicate the developmental trait that considerably affect user’s spatial experience which derives from either sustainable/prudent or poor design decisions; and third, to generically recreate and visually represent urban spaces for communicative purposes.

Recent discussions in architectural and art practice based research indicate the need to rethink both the potentials and limitations of knowing by designing, especially through the viewpoint of supervisors and peers. The article represents a reflection on the design research reflections presented at thelast Graduate Research Conference in Ghent. It aims to contribute to the improvement of the supervisor's sensitivity for redirecting the research itself and the research interpretation endeavours to achieve the level of excellence, recognizable by the relevant target audiences.
B.03 Paper at an international scientific conferenceCOBISS.SI-ID: 2862724
An advanced primary traffic system and a favourable traffic position of the "object of observation" result in openness of space and connection to the outside world. A dense network of local roads can be an additional advantage when developing the network of cultural routes, where the primary goal of visiting a specific object of observation, can now be expanded to other areas (cuisine, natural sites of special interest etc.). Since our primary intention was to represent, and systematically contextualize the specific points of discussion, we tried to select routes that best describe the area, the ideology and the environment/time of building a structure. The criteria of selecting the route, in designing the new “heritage” network, should be chosen in accordance with the guidelines of sustainable tourism. In doing this, it is essential that the design of the system is simple, yet giving everyone the choice of alternatives, decisions and visits.
