The exhibition "Geoffrey James: Social Spaces - Jože Plečnik in Ljubljana" about the actuality of one of the most remarkable European architects of the 20th century opens in the gallery of the Architekturzentrum Wien.

Jože Plečnik created a distinctive cityscape with a series of public spaces and routes that enter into dialogue with the historical inventory and nature through monuments, staircases, raised benches, columns and other spatial markers. In his exhibition at the Az W Gallery, Canadian photographer Geoffrey James focuses on traces of the social and sensual facets of Jože Plečnik’s transformation of the city of Ljubljana.

In cooperation with SKICA (Slovenian Culture Information Centre) and Vienna University of Technology.
