About us

BIG SEE comes from South-East Europe and aims to become the global springboard for a responsible, Bio Intelligent Generation.

History
BIG started in early 2000s as a Slovene national promotor of quality architecture and design, hosting 2 national award & trade shows & conferrences and publishing the award winning magazine Hiše (“Houses”, until 2023).
Because a larger reference frame enlarges competence and range, in mid 2010s we expanded our activities to the region of South-East Europe – SEE –, hosting 2 regional award & trade shows & conferrences and publishing a magazine “see” (from May 2024).

Present
Because climate change is not only the challenge of the century, but also an exceptional opportunity for creative industries the world over, we are aiming to expand our activities further as advancing climate change affords no safe zones.

Future
BIG SEE will work to empower and encourage global creative industries and minds to take up the mission only they can accomplish: to trigger and push through urgent changes in the ways people live and work and above all consume.
Designers and architects need to deliver sustainable products and projects that are better and more affordable and that look great, too.
