Jože Plečnik was the architect responsible for many of Ljubljana's most iconic and iconic objects, such as the Trinity Bridge and Market Hall or the Križanke and Shoemaker Bridge. However, despite the grandiose projects that Plečnik was able to carry out, there were other plans in Slovenia and abroad that went even further and were not realized.

From October 18 to January 26, 2020, visitors to Plečnik's house (Karunova 4-6, Ljubljana 1000) will be delighted to go with the many they find when visiting the great man's home for him with his exacting specifications and full of distinctive touches. During these months, the museum will host an exhibition titled Plečnik Ljubljana Unrealized Projects, which will show how the city would have looked if the architect had been able to build four of his larger works: New Town Hall, Butchers' Bridge (on site) Tower of the Castle Hill and Liberty Cathedral in Tivoli Park.

While sketches of these works have long existed, the displays in this exhibition used 3D modeling, visualization and 3D printing, implementing them in the context of today's city, as shown in the following pictures.
