Cultural Centre of European Space Technologies (KSEVT) @ Vitanje

The Cultural Centre of European Space Technologies (KSEVT) is the headquarters of an eponymous institute, promoting research in the fields of space culturalization.

Moreover, it is the central cultural venue in Vitanje, where the family of Herman Potočnik Noordung, the spaceflight pioneer, originates.

Floor plan:

The design derives from Potočnik’s plans for a habitable wheel, one of the three parts of a geostationary space station that is described in his 1928 book “Das Problem der Befahrung des Weltraums – der Raketen-Motor” (The Problem of Space Travel – The Rocket Motor).

The building is a concrete monolithic object that consists of two low cylinders. In the dynamic relation of these two, an impression of levitation and rotation is created.

Its central hall is surrounded by the main exhibition area, and they are both connected with a round opening in the middle.
