*** Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik considerably changed the image of Ljubljana by his urban design and architectural interventions. His legacy has been recently listed as the UNESCO heritage due to the highly contextual and human-scale urbanistic approach (https://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1643/). We will spend the early morning learning what was important to Plečnik when creating public spaces.
