    Ljubljana, Slovenia_ Plečnik and Ravinkar

    mbrdarski Jul 5 '10 0

    My trip to Ljubljana would not be complete without a visit to some of Jože Plečnik’s projects. Below are a few photographs of Plečnik’s Library and some additional projects by his student Edvard Ravinkar. One needs only to look at the façade to see the influence of Plečnik on Ravinkar.

About this Blog

This research is driven to uncover and examine the idiosyncrasies of the architecture that grew out of social modernism in Yugoslavia in the 60s and 70s. Through my travels to the Ex-Yugoslav republics, I will investigate the ways in which these characteristics are informed, urbanistically and architecturally, by the historical, social and –above all- built domain of the preceding decades in Yugoslavia.
