Ana Kučan presents principles and projects of her studio 
“The AKKA team has been driven for the quest for quality, which, we believe, is achieved by socially and environmentally responsible development of the physical context we live in. Over the past six years our work had focused on landscape and urban design, mostly for public clients. In these fields we have been pursuing design solutions without a pre-conceived idea, with a conviction that problems always differ according to space, programme and expectations. Each design creates a new story, a result of its contextual grounding. Sensitive response to this variety of tasks can help broaden our imagination and increase the well being of people. Recently AKKA extended its designs to private gardens, aspiring to respond to very personal tastes and desires. Our projects now range from town planning to parks and gardens, from playgrounds to town squares and historic renovations, regardless of scale and type of interventions.”

Dr. Ana Kučan is a professor of landscape design and theory at the Department of Landscape Architecture of the Biotechnical Faculty, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, and a principal of Studio AKKA. After receiving her bachelor’s degree at the University of Ljubljana, Ana Kučan continued her studies in urban design at the Graduate School of Design, Harvard University, and then returned to Ljubljana to complete her doctoral dissertation. She has won prominent urban and landscape design competitions, both individually and with Studio AKKA. Her work has received several national and international awards, including the Piranesi Prize in 1998 and 2002, and the Plečnik Award in 2003. In 2006, Ana Kučan was nominated for the Rosa Barba Award at the Barcelona International Landscape Biennale. She published Landscape as a National Symbol in 1998, a work based on her doctoral thesis. She was a member of the first Editorial Advisory Board of the academic Journal of Landscape Architecture and writes for Landscape Architecture Europe. She’s been invited to lecture at several universities in Europe and has recently presented her work at the American Institute of Architects in New York. She is also the leading team member of the project All Shades of Green, presented at the 12th Biennale of Architecture in Venice in 2010.
