Plečnik’s concept of planning the rehabilitation of Ljubljana
Most of Plečnik’s work was achieved in the strict urban core, mainly on the edge joining the historical medieval core with the new city. Plečnik gradually created a composition of places surrounding the old city that became important connecting elements between the medieval and modern city, at that time in its first development surge. From his work it is clear that he achieved his imaginary city gradually and methodically, with architectural emphasis and based on ties between particular key places in the city. He recognised these key spaces in the city, tied them together with axes and merged them into the present urban tissue.
