WHAT IS MEDS?MEDS Meeting of design students is an international association developed by and for design students from different European countries.It was founded in 2010 with an aim to bring together European students of architecture, interior architecture, industrial design, graphic design, etc. to work on the same project on an international level and explorepractical world of designing.
MEDS WORKSHOPWith this idea MEDS organizes an annual event, usually lasting ten days, which takes place each summer in a different European city.The main goal of MEDS is to share international experiences and knowledge to generate new and fresh ideas, to enrich the city in which the workshop takes place, and as a participant to become part of something bigger; an exciting and dynamic design community.
Event is co-ordinated by architectural academics and students and is based on activities, more or less related to design.Event is non-profit and funded by a combination of attendance fees, grants and sponsorships, all arranged by the organizing committee.

MEDS 2012 THEME Every year organizers choose a theme of workshop that is related to the hosting city. Events workshop, exhibi-tion, lectures and social events are designed around the theme, allowing participants to gain a deeper under-standing of the ideas driving the projects.
This years theme is called sensABILITY.The five senses are fundamental to our everyday perceptions of the world. Designers strive to stimulate feelings and emotions based on peoples reactions to their senses in a particular environment.Unfortunately, in contemporary culture we are sensually biased: visual qualities predominate.
sensABILITY aims to free the participant from this visually driven world. Workshops will strive to liberate our sense of touch, sound, smell and potentially even taste, to give us a richer understanding and appreciation of the designed world around us.
There are many accessories designed to help and guide us through the city, causing us to become passive in attitude and less aware of the space that surrounds us. Traffic lights, zebra crossings and pavements have made it almost unnecessary for pedestrians to observe each other. Let's change this and regenerate our senses!

MEDS 2012 LOCATIONThe projects will be located in Ljubljana, close to the city center. Location will depend on the size and nature of the particular project. Installations will be situated in wide open spaces like squares, parks, etc. On the first day of the workshop we will introduce you to the chosen locations and their specifics.
Workshops not involving construction can gain free access to classrooms at the faculty. There are also some working spaces at the hostel, where we can provide you with a workshop space if necessary.Tutors who have special requirements regarding the location of their workshop proposal will be considered in collaboration with the MEDS team.

HISTORY OF LJUBLJANA
Legend has it that Ljubljana was founded by the Greek mythological hero Jason and his companions, the Argonauts, who had stolen the golden fleece from King Aetes and fled from him across the Black Sea and up the Danube, Sava and Ljubljanica rivers. They stopped at a large lake in the marsh near the source of the Ljubljanica, where they disassembled their ship to be able to carry it to the Adriatic Sea, put it together again, and return to Greece. The lake where they made a stop was the dwelling place of a monster. Jason fought the monster, defeated it and killed it. The monster, now referred to as the Ljubljana Dragon, found its place atop the castle tower on the Ljubljana coat of arms.
An infertile bog to the south of the present city was settled during the Bronze Age, around 2000 BC, by marsh dwellers who lived in round wooden huts built on stilts driven into the marsh ground or lake bed. These early people mostly hunters and fisherfolk were followed by numerous tribes and peoples, as the Ljubljana Gateway has since ever had a key geographical position. The site of the present Ljubljana was first settled by the Veneti, and later by the Illyrians, the Illyrian-Celtic tribe of Iapydes, and, in the 3rd century BC, by the Celtic tribe called Taurisci, who established themselves along the Ljubljanica River.

HISTORY OF LJUBLJANA
Emona, the earliest known name of the present Ljubljana, is probably of Celtic origin, but the first important settlement in the area, however, came with the arrival of the Romans who built a military camp there in around 50 BC. Until then Ljubljana Basin was a part of the Celtic kingdom of Noricum.
Emona, built in 14 AD, was a flourishing commercial hub and an important centre of early Christianity. It had a population between five and six thousand, its inhabitants being mainly merchants, craftsmen, administrative officials and war veterans. The city had its own patron goddess, Equrna, worshipped at Ljubljana Marshes. Its streets were paved. Its block-built residential buildings had rendered walls and mosaic floors and were equipped with sewage facilities and central heating. Emona was at a strategic crossroad on the routes linking Upper Pannonia in the south with the Roman colonies at Noricum and Aquileia to the north and west. Legacies of the Roman presence, remnants of walls, dwellings and early churches, can still be seen throughout Ljubljana.
Emona's tumultuous history ended in 452, when the city was sacked and destroyed by the Huns, Ostrogoths and Langobards (Lombards) from the mid-5th century, but the Ljubljana gate remained an important crossing point between east and west.
For long decades during the Migration Period it was wrapped in darkness. The Slovenians' Slavic forefathers arrived in the area at the end of the 6th century and began to build a settlement under the shelter of the present castle hill. The settlement gradually turned into a medieval town.
