Description

Postwar industrialisation in Slovenia was accompanied by precipitated town planning. From 1947 to 1956, projects for three new cities were born: Strni"ce near Ptuj (later Kidricevo), Nova Gorica and Velenje. All three cities were built as political and economic projects based on integral town planning concepts incorporating the international paradigm of a functionalist city. Their planning was initialised by concepts defended by CIAM in the so-called Athens Charter, by the town planning ideas of Le Corbusier and by pre-war German rationalism under the influence of the Bauhaus.
