Kozolec in the landscape

Tu pride flash

Prof Borut Juvanec, Department of Vernacular Architecture at Ljubljana University defines this Slovenian construction: The kozolec (hayrack) is a free standing, permanent, mainly wooden, vertical, open but roofed device for drying and storing the goods: hay and grain. It is the only ethnical architecture I know: it exists exclusively in ethnical territory of Slovenian nation.

As an icon,kozolec for the most part defines the largely agricultural Slovenian landscape and is still in use today, particularly the toplar barnlike type, which provides cover for farm machinery and vehcles.
