Through these collaborations, they aim to reinvigorate and translate Plečnik's work into the present. Dorit Margreiter Choy's artistic intervention at Plečnik House as a historically marked site, including the architectural structures, the garden, and display elements, deals with the relationship between past and present, between living space and workspace, and the complicated interplay between private and public.

“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.

The exhibition is being developed for the 110th anniversary of Vlasto Kopač’s birth, which we will commemorate in 2023. The architect Kopač began studying architecture in 1934 at the Department of Architecture, University of Ljubljana. Between 1937 and 1940, he worked as a draughtsman for professor Jože Plečnik.

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.

In the Plečnik Year 2022, students of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering in Ljubljana explored how Plečnik’s works can be seen, observed, understood, artistically contemplated, and how to familiarise with them in the context of the community. They created original video recordings that can be seen in the video exhibition 'Space in Movement, with Plečnik' at the Plečnik House.

The third of four exhibitions presented in Plečnik House during the Plečnik Year 2022 offers an insight into the work, methods and curricula of Plečnik's School in Ljubljana. Along with Plečnik's creations an almost equally important ingredient of his legacy is also his pedagogical work, which is still reverberating today in the works of his students.
