No visionary buildings for Maribor

Maribor has been the European Capital of Culture 2012 for almost half a year. While the cultural programme is running well, many architectural projects that were heralded as visionary have run into the sand, writes the conservative daily Večer: "As recently as 2009 people were saying that Maribor was on the verge of the biggest development phase in its history. Not only the city but also the major construction firms had big plans. The list of construction projects was lengthy, the sums to be invested were dizzyingly high. ... But nothing came of the city's plan to force the state to fund this architectural game of poker. Pleasant memories will remain of the Cultural Capital, but Maribor will see nothing of the lasting development that had been so loudly touted. Perhaps that's all for the better, because the promises, the project implementation, the maintenance and the personnel costs would have driven the city into ruin."
