“A tower, a mule, me and the garden” – that is how Jože Plečnik imagined his life when he didn’t know yet that after Vienna and Prague his native Ljubljana would be his lifetime’s environment for his creative work.

News

The exhibition, which presents 33 liturgical vessels by the Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik to more than 20,000 daily visitors of the Vatican Museums has already been extensively reported on in Slovenian and foreign media. However, a few days ago an article by Maria De Candia was also published in Trovaroma – a weekly supplement of the newspaper La Repubblica that reports on the events in Rome.

The façade of the National and University Library (NUK), a graceful vignette and the door handle in the form of a dove are three of Plečnik’s works that were inspirational to the students of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering (NTF). As part of the Plečnik as Inspiration project students created unique pieces of jewellery, which are now available at the Plečnik House museum shop.

Plečnik House

Walking through Ljubljana it is impossible to ignore the abundance of arrangements and architectural creations made by the Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik. Born in Ljubljana, Plečnik learned his craft in Vienna and acquired a creative broadness of mind in Prague. He deftly implemented his skills as he returned to Ljubljana, where he created the phenomenon now called Plečnik’s Ljubljana. Many of his ideas were conceived in his home, a house in Trnovo, a monument of national importance since 2009 and today a public museum. You are kindly invited to visit the Plečnik House and learn about this modest man responsible for such monumental architecture. Enter the house in which Plečnik’s Ljubljana was created!
