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 annexe of the house, constructed between 1923 and 1925 by the great architect himself. The Plečnik House comprises a complex of two houses, and a garden with a lapidary, which all form a part of the Plečnik Collection as well.

The renovations of the Plečnik House and its surroundings began in September 2013, the opening of a permanent exhibition and a study centre is set for September 2015.



The Plečnik Collection department was established along with the Architecture Museum in 1972, to focus on the preservation of Plečnik's estate, yet it was opened to public in 1974, side by side with the Plečnik House. The role of the department is to preserve the existent material as well as to acquire the new, to explore the period and circumstances in which the master lived and worked, and to educate, present and promote the work of Jože Plečnik.
