“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 ...

16. 6. 2023–8. 10. 2023

On the occasion of the 110th anniversary of the birth of architect Vlasto Kopač, Plečnik's student and collaborator, which is being celebrated this year, the exhibition highlights the versatility of this too often overlooked architect's work in many fields, from architecture to monument conservation, from mountaineering to graphic design.

20. 10. 2023–28. 1. 2024

The exhibition, an ongoing collaboration with the ZRC SAZU France Stele Institute of Art History, will present the close relationship between Dr. France Stele and Plečnik, which was both professional and a true friendship, which we can read from the extensive correspondence that Stele preserved. During the construction of Plečnik’s projects in Ljubljana, Stele was the head conservator and the head of the Monument Office.

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!
