The subject of the competition is the architectural design of the building of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (UL FS) in the area marked EUP RD 358, within the framework of the University Center Brdo (OPPN 65). The area under consideration is located in the western part of the city of Ljubljana, at the northern foot of Rožnik hill, which ends on the west side of the Trail of Remembrance and Comradeship (PST).

The building of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering is placed in a narrower area determined on the basis of a preliminary urban competition for the building of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and the Faculty of Pharmacy. The subject of the competition is also the external arrangement of the wider competition area of the two faculties, which in certain parts exceeds the ownership boundaries.

University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FS) and Faculty of Pharmacy (FFA) intend to complete the construction in the area of the new University center Brdo, where the Biotechnical Faculty (BF), the Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (FKKT) and the Faculty of Computer and Information Science (FRI) are already located.

The new faculty building should provide pedagogues and students with quality working conditions for study and research, cutting-edge, modern and technically faultless laboratory and other related facilities, and, in general, a stimulating university environment.

The chosen competition solution will be the basis for the project documentation for the construction of the faculty building. The narrow competition area of the faculty is 1.57 ha, while the wider competition area of the external arrangement is about 4.67 ha.

Additional visit to the existing site will be held on Wednesday, 10th July 2019 at 13.00 p.m. at Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Aškerčeva cesta 6, 1000 Ljubljana, Slovenia.
