DESSA gallery is first Slovene architectural gallery. It presents and encourages high quality architecture, innovative design, socially oriented projects, responsible architects, creative designers, engaged investors and long-term visions. We strongly belive burning problems of our time can not be solved without architectural profession.




DESSA gallery is a private architectural gallery which actively works in Slovene and international space. It has established international platform for profession exchange and for recognition of diverse architectural ideas. DESSA is active for the last 25 years which places it among three oldest European galleries. Many internationally recognized architects exhibited in DESSA gallery. Architects Andrej Hrausky and Majda Cajnko, who have run the gallery for the 25 years, have helped DESSA and the contemporary Slovene architecture and architects to their international recognition. DESSA gallery was first and for many years the only institution from the East Europe that is a member of Advisory Council of Mies van der Rohe award.
