Plečnik's Architecture in Ljubljana

The book Plečnik's Architecture in Ljubljana, written by Andrej Hrausky, an architect who already authored several books and is a connoisseur of Plečnik's work, brings a comprehensive overview of Plečnik's oeuvre in the Slovenian capital. According to the author, the book’s goal was mainly to, "explain Plečnik’s architecture – how to view it, observe it, and understand it"

The book is a comprehensive presentation of the architecture and of other works by Jože Plečnik, who began creating the image of modern Ljubljana in 1921, when he returned to his hometown from Prague. From 1921 to his death in 1957, Plečnik never ran out of ideas. The book’s predecessor was the booklet Plečnik’s Ljubljana, published in 1997 and written by Janez Koželj, Damjan Prelovšek and Andrej Hrausky, which quickly sold out among fans of Plečnik’s work.

Numerous supporters and sponsors recognised the importance of the new overview book of Plečnik’s architecture in Ljubljana. They enabled the publication through their financial support or by working on the book: Ministry of Culture, City of Ljubljana, BTC City, VODOVOD-KANALIZACIJA Public Company, Zavarovalnica Triglav, Grafika Gracer, GRAFO LIT, Atelje Galerija, Baumit Slovenija, Lafarge, M Sora and Arcadia lighting.

The book was published in English and Slovene, hard copy, 304 pages.
