Plečnik House, 2 February-12 May 2024

A new exhibition at the Plečnik House will highlight the principles of Plečnik's design of open space in Ljubljana.

The surroundings of buildings, gardens, parks, squares, roads, promenades, staircases, embankments, courtyards, playgrounds, the stadium, the summer theatre, the memorial and archaeological park, the farewell complex by the cemetery, and even the graves - architect Plečnik designed almost every conceivable kind of urban open space in his design of Ljubljana. The exhibition Plečnik and Ljubljana: the ordering of open space, which opens at the Plečnik House on Friday 2 February 2024, is dedicated to these very principles of his work.

The author of the exhibition is Conservation Councillor mag. Darja Pergovnik, who has been working at the Slovenian Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage for many years on the study and protection of Plečnik's buildings and green spaces in Ljubljana.
