The project ‘Architectural Sketches of the Brežice Old Town Centre’ was designed as part of the efforts to revive the old town centre. Its role is to bring the abandoned display windows back to life by temporarily displaying artwork by local artists. Therefore, by taking a walk through the town, you can also see the street gallery. This way, the architect and artist Vesna Lapuh provided a window to the creativity of our ancestors and a possibility of how to shape our future.
