Museum of Architecture and Design

BIO - 02.jpg

The Architecture Museum of Ljubljana was established in 1972 by the Municipality of Ljubljana. In April 2010 the management of the museum was transferred from the city to the state. Under the new name the Museum of Architecture and Design is the central Slovene museum for architecture, town planning, industrial and graphic design, and photography. Since 1992 the Museum is located at Fužine Castle.

Since 1972 the Secretariat of the Biennial of Design (BIO) (formerly known as Biennial of Industrial Design) operates under the aegis of the museum. In 2014, for its 50th anniversary, a completely new curatorial practice was implemented: the 24th Biennial of Design (BIO 50) has taken a collaborative approach, considering actual changes in the way people nowadays co-work and co-create. The international design exhibition was curated by Jan Boelen.

In 2015 the MAO launched the Future Architecture Platform, with an aim of communicating the social, environmental, economic and design potentials of architecture to the widest possible audiences across Europe. The open call was open to architects as well as to urban planners, curators, landscape architects, designers, artists, filmmakers, etc. The selected applicants present their ideas at the February Matchmaking Conference at MAO where they pitch their ideas. The Future Architecture programme of exhibitions, conferences, lectures and workshops will run between 1 March and 31 October 2016 across Europe.

From 1972 until 2010 the Plečnik Collection represented an important department of the Museum of Architecture and Design. Now managed by the Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana), the collection is located at a separate location in the Plečnik House in Trnovo, where Jože Plečnik lived from 1921 until his death in 1957.

The collection consists of Plečnik's original work and furniture, his library, his drawing tools, and his personal belongings. The original artefacts of Jože Plečnik encompass a large archive of sketches, plans, photographs, and models made of wood, clay, and plaster, as well as Plečnik's correspondence and his student work. The main part of the collection is on display in the cylindrical annex of the house, constructed between 1923 and 1925 by the architect himself. In 2015 the exhibition premises were extended. Today the collection is housed in a complex of two houses at Karunova ulica 4 and 6, with an adjacent garden with a lapidarium.

The renovations of the Plečnik House and its surroundings took two years to complete, the Plečnik Collection together with a permanent exhibition and a study centre has been on view since September 2015.
