Plečnik and the Sacred
12. 10. 2018–20. 1. 2019
On the basis of original written records, sketches and correspondences, as well as completed projects at home and abroad, the Plečnik and the Sacred exhibition will strive to present Plečnik's idea of what is sacred. Plečnik's concept of "sacred" is not only linked with his religious beliefs, as it also encompasses ideas of morality, rectitude, righteousness and, after all, architecture itself.

"You are a sort of a Pygmalion, Otto Wagner told me once in a fatherly fashion," architect Jože Plečnik remembered his professor who thusly commented Plečnik’s working enthusiasm. In 2018, our north neighbour Austria is commemorating the 100th anniversary since the death of architect Otto Wagner. The exhibition, prepared by the Wien Museum, will also present documents from our Plečnik Collection.

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!
