a pearl of Slovenian cultural heritage of 20th centuryPlečnik House with a permanent 'Plečnik' exhibition
“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.

Tomažič graduated in 1924 and remained with Plečnik as an assistant until 1930, when he became independent. In 1932 he passed the Professional Competence Examination and became a certified architectural engineer, upon which he opened his own studio in Ljubljana. At first, Tomažič followed Plečnik's architectural view very closely, but with his first independent works he demonstrated a complete reversal and understanding of modern planning problems.

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.
