Exhibition opening and discussion: Learning from Plečnik


[Translate to English:] [Translate to English:]

At the opening of the exhibition 'Social Spaces — Jože Plečnik in Ljubljana', architecture experts from Slovenia and Austria reflect on the current relevance of one of the most notable European architects of the 20th century.

Jože Plečnik created a distinctive cityscape with a series of public spaces and routes that enter into dialogue with the historical inventory and nature through monuments, staircases, raised benches, columns and other spatial markers. In his exhibition at the Az W Gallery, Canadian photographer Geoffrey James focuses on traces of the social and sensual facets of Jože Plečnik’s transformation of the city of Ljubljana.

At the opening, a panel of architecture experts discusses the relevance of Plečnik’s work today, and asks how such diverse spatial realms could be designed today to enable social interaction and so contribute to the life of a neighbourhood.

In cooperation with SKICA (Slovenian Culture Information Centre) and Vienna University of Technology.
