Name of Project: St. Michael´s Fortress

Description of Project: Built on a 60-meter-high rocky hill above the channel, St. Michaelís Fortress is the central point of äibenik´s fortification system and the core around which the medieval town developed. The oldest preserved parts of the fortress date back from the 13th century, but most of them are from the 15th and 16th century. Given that the Fortress as fortification was never fully completed because of possibility for future adaptation in military technology, after renovation in 2014, a new layer of signage needed to represent the 21st century. New signage system helps visitors to find their way to target destinations but also makes them aware of more things to do once they arrive at a known destination. Thus a place that once served for war purposes, now undoubtedly belongs to artists.
