The Architecture of Maks Fabiani-Pictures
Dates:25/03/2015-14/09/2015

Some of the finest Ljubljana works by the renowned Art Nouveau architect Maks Fabiani are presented in an open-air photographic exhibition by Miran Kambič, which marks the 150th anniversary of Fabiani's birth.

Maks Fabiani was one of the most important architects in Central Europe at the turn of the 20th century. In all periods of his career he remained faithful to Art Nouveau's underlying intention of making connections between art and everyday life.

For Fabiani, every building design project was also an urban development project involving a wider whole. This is particularly true of his Ljubljana works, practically all of which have their foundations in the large-scale urban plan for the redevelopment of Ljubljana after the earthquake of 1895, proposed by Fabiani on his own initiative the same year.

The photographer Miran Kambič (born 1965) has for many years been well-known for his work in the field of architectural photography. He is a regular contributor to Slovenian and international architectural magazines. His photographs have appeared in numerous books and catalogues and have been widely exhibited.

Ljubljana
Plans, Traps and Alternatives - 120 Years of Modern Urbanism in Ljubljana
Dates:14/05/2015-18/10/2015

The New Millennia exhibition, set up in celebration of the 150th birth anniversary of the Slovenian architect Maks Fabiani (1865–1962), is where the famous architect's thoughts on the future meet the work of modern-day urban planners and architects.

Maks Fabiani was one of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy's most important urban planners in and one of the most influential architects at the turn of the 20th century. Fabiani was the author of an essay titled Acma, l'anima del mondo, which offers an analysis of the development of modern man and society.

The essay ends with a chapter titled New Millennia, which discusses the future. The New Millennia exhibition presents modern urban plans, concepts, programmes, and interventions created by generations of urban planners and architects following in Fabiani's wake. Their comparison with the thoughts expressed in Fabiani's essay reveal Fabiani as a true visionary.

Ljubljana
Maks Fabiani: A monarchy’s architect - overview
Dates:26/03/2015-28/06/2015

This major exhibition in celebration of the 150th birth anniversary of the famous Art Nouveau architect Maks Fabiani gives an overview of the architect's oeuvre and presents the works he created in Vienna, Ljubljana, and Trieste.

Maks Fabiani (1865–1962) was a collaborator of the Viennese architect Otto Wagner and one of the originators of the Viennese Secession. After the devastating Ljubljana earthquake of 1895, he created a new conceptual solution for the urban redevelopment of Ljubljana, which later provided a basis for the famous architect Jože Plečnik to develop his own vision of the city.

In Vienna, Fabiani designed three palatial buildings that were considered to be among the most famous architectural works of the early 20th century, the best-known being the Urania, a magnificent multipurpose building with an observatory built between 1909 and 1910. In Italy, Fabiani designed the National Halls (Narodni dom) in Trieste and the House of Trade (Trgovski dom) in Gorizia, both cultural and business centres used by the local Slovenian community.

Ljubljana
Fabiani’s legacy in Ljubljana
Dates:22/04/2015-30/09/2015

Maks Fabiani, whose 150th birth anniversary is celebrated in Ljubljana this year, was a renowned member of the Austrian Art Nouveau movement, known as the Viennese Secession. He was also the architect whose conceptual solution for the urban development of Ljubljana was later built upon by Jože Plečnik.

Fabiani left a significant legacy in a number of European cities, but the most profound was definitely the mark he left on Ljubljana as after the Ljubljana earthquake of 1895 he developed, on his own initiative and free of charge, a large-scale urban plan for the city.

Supported by Ljubljana's progressive mayor Ivan Hribar, Fabiani prepared not only the regulatory plan for the redevelopment of Ljubljana, but also architectural plans for a large number of modern new buildings. Today, the central point of his Art Nouveau Ljubljana is considered to be the Miklošič Park area, completed in 1908 and originally named Slovenian Square.
