Education and employment Vojko Kilar graduated at the Department for Structures, Earthquake engineering and Computers at the Faculty of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy at the University of Ljubljana in 1988. He obtained a Master's degree in 1991, followed by a PhD in 1995 with the thesis "A simplified non-linear analysis of building structures under horizontal loads". During the preparation of the Doctoral dissertation, he was granted a 12 month Fulbright scholarship to study at the Columbia University in New York. Since 1995 he has been employed at the Faculty of Architecture in Ljubljana and from 2015 onwards as a full Professor in the scientific field of Architectural technology. He lectures subjects Statics, Basics of building mechanics and Design of structures for graduate/Master's study program at the Faculty of architecture at the University of Ljubljana. Research work His first research work contribution was made in the field of earthquake engineering within research group led by academic Prof. Dr. Peter Fajfar. From 2000 onwards, he began to engage more intensively in the integration of seismic engineering and architecture. From 2007 – 2010 Vojko Kilar was leader of the ARRS research project entitled 'Introducing advanced technology to increase safety in the architecture of modern residential buildings', and during 2011 until 2013 he was leader of the project 'Safety of passive houses during earthquake'. With regard to both projects, three young researchers were approved, receiving their doctorates in 2011, 2013 and 2016 respectively. Within the framework of these projects, they investigated the possibility of using seismic isolation in order to increase building safety and the effects of its application in the design of buildings. Since 2013, Vojko Kilar has been the leader of the ARRS programme 'Sustainable design of a quality living space as well, which is being carried out at the FA. Currently, his research work is oriented mainly towards increasing safety in buildings of architectural heritage as well as, for Slovenia a relatively new area of research, an methodology to analyse the capability of the urban community to response properly in the event of natural disasters. The results of Prof. Dr. Vojko Kilar's work in the last 10 years (2007 – 2017) have been presented in a total of 85 scientific papers (36 of which were published in international journals from international databases with impact factors), in 6 parts of scientific monographies, 11 professional papers and 4 textbooks. His work has received a respectable recognition from abroad as well, evidenced by 139 citations in scientific journals from the WoS database over the past 10 years, and a series of citations in publications not included in the WoS/Scopus database. Professional work Independently or together with co-authors, he has been involved in more than 80 static projects and in the analysis of a variety of buildings both at home and abroad. As an important landmark in his professional work, it is worth mentioning the fact that he was a static designer/constructor of the building structures of all the ski jumps and towers in the Nordic Centre Planica build within 2010-2015. The Nordic Centre project has also received the prestigious Slovenian “architect Plečnik” award: http://www.delo.si/kultura/razno/plecnikova-nagrada-nordijskemu-centru-planica.html.
