Luka Murovec is a spatial practitioner, who works at the intersection of architecture and art interventions in public spaces. His work strives to create inspiring situations that respect history and cultural heritage but are radically contemporary and committed to a sustainable future for all living beings. Through a blend of experimental architectural methods, sculptural forms, and conscious use of materials, he constructs spaces that can serve as critical tools of cultural introspection.


In response to urban and environmental challenges, "The City of Now" proposes transforming cities into dynamic, participatory spaces. It showcases practices and realized collaborative efforts that repurpose vacant lots into temporary parks, install interactive art in public squares, and more, envisioning a future public space that takes fun and play seriously and ignites public imagination. "The City of Now" challenges traditional urban planning, fostering inclusivity and creativity. Its future evolution depends on ongoing experimentation and collaboration, offering a timely framework for imagining vibrant, sustainable cities rooted in joy and solidarity.
