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.
