HISTORY OF THE FUTURE:Archetypes of Plečnik's Architecture
7. 2. 2020–31. 5. 2020

The exhibition presents a series of photographs, axonometric drawings, and abstract models made from wood, epoxy resin, and plaster – of the so-called “archetypes” in which students condensed the ideas from select examples of Plečnik’s architecture. With archetypes students created a rich architectural vocabulary that helped them form new projects of different scales.

Plečnik House

If you noticed the poster or visited the exhibition Plečnik and the Sacred, Jože Plečnik, Slovenian Architect and Designer, you have surely seen the Škorjanc Chalice as the exhibition’s iconic artefact. Its photograph is on all accompanying publications. What is the story behind this unique chalice was lately entrusted to us by the relatives of the priest Jože Škorjanc.

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!
