Saša Dev, Plečnik's student and an architect of the interwar Maribor, was one of the co-creators of modernist architecture in Slovenia. His architectural works remain relevant today, as he would do more than just follow contemporary trends as a young architect but rather surpass them by several decades in the context of the relationship towards urban fabric.

“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.
