Tadej Juran, born on the 4th of July 1988, grew up in a family with a long tradition of carpentry. He studied in the Netherlands at the Eindhoven University of Technology and achieved a master’s degree at the Faculty of Architecture, the University of Ljubljana in 2016. Among the other awards, he received the highest Slovenian award for architecture students (The Plečnik Award) for his master thesis entitled Sensorial experience of the retreat architecture.
He sees architecture as a broad field of human creative expression. As an organism, in which different aspects of science, philosophy, and art come together. In 2017 he established his own atelier Juran where he focuses on the architectural designs that reflect the insights of material nature which are inseparably connected with the inner depths, existential attitudes, and the innermost nature of human beings.
