In October 2008 Expeditio was engaged to design a project for the reconstruction of “Duković” Palace in Herceg Novi. The work was commissioned by the Foundation “Duković”. In 1990, as an illustrative example of the 19th-century profane architecture and because of its cultural and historical values, the Endowment of Aleksandar Duković was registered as a third category cultural monument and recorded in the Central registry of immovable cultural monuments of Montenegro. The project will be finished by the beginning of 2009.

BratislavaOdavno sam nešto obećao, ima tome evo već godina i nešto, i evo došlo je vreme da obećanje i ispunim, govoreći o mestu u kome sam proveo godinu dana. Razlog zašto se ranije nisam oglasio jeste da najpre nisam poznavao stvari dovoljno, a kada sam ih upoznao, već je bilo kasno, jer sam izgubio svaki kritički stav i sopstvenu objektivnost. Isto kao što pišući i govoreći o Beogradu, u kome sam rođen i odrastao, ne mogu da budem objektivan, tako ni o Bratislavi, u kojoj sam proveo godinu dana, ne mogu da budem objektivan. Nadam se da cu uspeti da zadržim ipak neki stepen pristojnosti i da će ovaj moj putopis uspeti da vas natera da razmislite o tome da posetite ovaj grad, koji, generalno gledano, i nije predaleko od ovih naših krajeva...

brnoRazmišljajući o tome šta da napišem o Brnu, gradu na jugu Češke Republike, koga sam ove godine posetio u dva navrata, shvatio sam da šta god napišem neće biti dovoljno da izrazi ono što sam osećao dok sam istraživao i upoznavao se sa istorijom i kvalitetima Brna.

Detalj iz palate
U drugoj polovini 2008. godine EXPEDITIO je angažovan od strane vlasnice palate Šestokrilović u Perastu da uradi arhitektonsku analizu palate. Ova analzia je trebala da posluži kao osnova za izradu projekta rekonstrukcije palate, s obzirom da palata Šestokrilović do sada nije istraživana a da predstavlja jednu od značajnijih palata u Perastu.

Naslovna stranaDear friends,

In 2009, Expeditio will celebrate its 12th anniversary. Each of these past 12 years, including 2008, has been a great challenge for our organization.

During 2008, we carried out various projects that started in 2007 and also wrote proposals for new projects.

At the beginning of 2009 a call will be launched for proposals focusing on cross-border cooperation between the countries of the region. If you are active in the fields of energy efficiency in construction or cultural heritage or if you have contacts with organizations and institutions that might be interested in implementing projects in the mentioned fields please contact us because we are seeking potential partners for our future projects. Thank you.

EXPEDITIO is a non-governmental organization whose mission is to encourage sustainable spatial development in Montenegro and SEE region through activity in the fields of sustainable architecture, cultural heritage, urban planning and through projects that encourage overall development of the civil society. Expeditio was established in 1997.
