The new Info point in park Tivoli in Ljubljana Slovenia, was opened this month. This sculpture is actually result of first Trimo Urban Crash competition in 2007 and was only a temporary installation in a different part of Tivoli park and demolished after two months.
Its an open, clear and structurally dynamic form in a contrasting red color that explores the possibility of motion in the environment, in witch this kind of exploration is needed; at the same time the movement itself is present as a natural environmental process. The idea represents a blooming of a frame though five different phases, a somewhat Calderian approach.
Luckily there was some civil society initiative that saw great opportunity and use for this urban sculpture. New purpose of sculpture is to inform visitors of different art installation and museum exhibitions that take part in park. There are two museums (International Center of Graphic Arts and National Museum of Contemporary History), Botanical garden and several exhibition places hidden in Tivoli park. It is also a new entrance point to Tivoli park it connects Celovska street, Bus parking spaces (only parking spaces in Ljubljana for tourists) and sports and event hall with Tivoli park.
