Plečnik Now! Exploring Public Space and Urban Porosity
On Friday November 4 , a high-profile event dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the architect Jože Plečnik took place in Berlin. SKICA Berlin, in cooperation with Joerg Gleiter and Birgit Klauck (Technische Universität Berlin and Institut für Architektur respectively) and the President of the Plečnik Foundation, Bostjan Vuga, organised a truly magnificent international symposium on Plečnik entitled Plečnik Now! Maja Vardjan, Maruša Zorec, Bostjan Vuga, Jürgen Mayer H, Luka Skansi, Olaf Nicolai and Joerg Gleiter presented their views on Plečnik and discussed contemporary aspects of Plečnik’s architecture, public space and urban porosity, as well as the so-called “uncanny” aspect in his work.
The symposium questions if Plečnik is up-to-date as a role model for Human Centered Urban Design. What can we learn from Plečnik?
Very welcome to watch the symposium here.

Sadar + Vuga welcomes you to meet TREASURES and FOLLIES at Zagreb Design Week 6.-11.9.2022.
Treasures is a family of furniture and useful objects that emerged alongside various architectural and interior projects. Follies is a series of products made in the office as an independent design project.
While they are all functional pieces, their defining essence lies in their suggestive, enchanting look and feel. Taken individually or in numbers, they happily inhabit the home, office, or public spaces and lend the space a sense of individual character, filling it with colour and personality.
Save the date 6.-11. 9. 2022 and visit us at Zagreb Design Week central location, Akademija likovnih umjetnosti, Ilica 85, Zagreb.
Glossary exhibition: Porosity and Protoelements taking part on Plečnik and Contemporaneity
Glossary is an exhibition project inspired by reflections on the significance of Plečnik’s work for the present day. Different authors – architects, artists, curators, designers, philosophers, landscape architects – were asked to propose a term, its definition, and a visual contribution that captures the question How do we think, interpret, and live Plečnik today?
SADAR studio project The History of the Future. Archetypes of Plečnik’s Architecture, addresses the idea of the PROTOELEMENT in the context of architecture that could be understood as the original constituent, the essence, the “protoform” that constitutes a larger whole – a work of architecture, and yet it can also appear on its own, free of its context, materiality and scale.
Studio project on display was mentored by Jurij Sadar and Ana Kreč at School of Architecture, University of Ljubljana in academic year 2017/18.
VUGA investigates POROSITY as a measure of void spaces in physical matter. The more porous an object of architecture the more inclusive its impact on different audiences and the more consequential its public character. Plečnik’s works constitute a new, human-scale urban public space. These porous spaces provide for the plurality of individual experience and stimulate our desire for exploration and active participation.
Visual reference on display: Sadar+Vuga, Butchers’ Bridge, competition project, model, 2009.
Very welcome to encounter Plečnik’s original work and projections through the eyes of contemporary practitioners and theorists in the context of our day and age. Visit City Museum of Ljubljana till February 2023!

Sadar+Vuga and the TREASURES collection hits the Salone del mobile Milan 2022!
Treasures is a family of individual pieces of furniture and useful objects that emerged alongside Sadar+Vuga’s various architectural and interior projects. Each object relates its own narrative, which evolved parallel to the object’s use and its interpretation of a characteristic Slovenian natural motif – like the magical Alpine lakes, the country’s highest mountain, the motif of the heart, and other elements of traditional craft. Their expression is straightforward, colorful, and unusual. They color the space around them as individual pieces, in pairs, or in groups.
