Sundays at MAO: UNIVERSUM PLEČNIK guided tour and a children’s workshop

In 1921, after decades of working abroad, Jože Plečnik returned to his home city of Ljubljana. Already a famous architect with an international career he took a position as professor at the newly founded university, and together with his students and supporters embarked on building a unique architectural, artistic, and ethical world, one that over the decades evolved into a one-of-a-kind architectural phenomenon. Looking at some of the approaches that the architect used in his work and discussing the complex relationship between the teacher and his students the exhibition at the Museum of Architecture and Design reflects on Plečnik’s extensive legacy and on certain topics that have not yet received much attention. With limited means, Plečnik reinterpreted the remains of the past and combined them into new, comprehensive units, gradually building the Slovenian capital into what we recognise today as the possibility of a different, more sustainable, and humane city.

 

Join us for a guided tour with Ana Kreč, exhibition designer (SVET VMES), Anja Delbello and Aljaž Vesel, graphic designers (AA).

 

While parents enjoy a guided tour of our current exhibition, their offspring learn about architecture through play and innovative creative workshops. Apply at: izobrazevanje@mao.si.
