Her M.A. thesis entitled “Preservation and conservation of the settlement Žabljak Crnojevića from the aspect of sustainable development” is a research piece that contributes to enhancing the field of spatial and city planning, especially the aspects of conservation and revitalization of architectural and cultural-historical heritage of the rural areas of Montenegro.

This is a public announcement regarding the articles in the daily newspaper “Vijesti” on June 6th and 7th 2006, about the construction of new hotels located at “URC Slavija” and the existing hotel “FJORD” in Kotor.

As an organization concerned with space and promoting its values, we wish to bring to public attention these issues which, in our opinion, might pose a serious threat to Kotor and the Bay of Boka Kotorska as an exceptionally valuable space within Montenegro.

We welcome you to the presentation of Jelena Pejković’s Master’s Thesis, completed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in December 2005. The topic of her work is „Awakening Perast: Interconnecting Past and Present Architecture in a Historic Town” and her thesis states that starting a Conservation school and dispersing it through Perast’s ruins would contribute not only to the awakening and the development of this town but also to the affirmation of contemporary architecture in the town’s historic texture. The lecture will be held at the Museum of Perast, on August 10, 2006 at 20:00. Jelena Pejković graduated from Harvard University in 2003 cum laude with a special concentration in Architecture and Urban Design. During her graduate studies she was a representative of MIT at the Renzo Piano Building Workshop in Paris. WELCOME!
