VURNIK DAYS

Since 2014, Center arhitekture Slovenije (CAS) has prepared celebrations to mark the anniversaries of the birth of architect Ivan Vurnik. 1 June, the birthday of this Radovljica-born architect is also Radovljica’s Local Community holiday. To commemorate this day, each year we prepare a diverse programme shedding light on the lives and work of the architect and his wife, painter Helena Kottler Vurnik.

Along with Jože Plečnik and Maks Fabiani, Ivan Vurnik (1884‒1971) is one of the pioneers of Slovenian architecture. Vurnik is presented as an expert, professor, and innovator – an artist of national importance. He also co-founded the Department of Architecture at the University of Ljubljana. Ivan Vurnik and his wife Helena Kottler Vurnik (1882-1962) were the initiators of national style in architecture and arts in the 1920s in Slovenia. The Cooperative Commercial Bank’s architecture is the finest case of their common work, with a strong reference to Expressionism and Cubism, which developed in parallel in Central Europe, with a strong presence of national motifs.

These anniversaries are an opportunity to present the lives and work of the Vurnik couple to the general public; therefore, CAS connected with the Local Community Radovljica, Municipality of Radovljica and local public cultural institutions – Radovljica Municipality Museums, Anton Tomaž Linhart Library, Radovljica Tourist Information Centre; and in Ljubljana, with the Museum of Architecture and Design, Faculty of Architecture of the University of Ljubljana, and Academy of Fine Arts and Design of the University of Ljubljana.

Projekt Vurnikovi dnevi je bil izbran v ožji izbor evropske nagrade za kulturno dediščino EUROPA NOSTRA 2015.

We prepared the Guide to Ivan Vurnik's Architectural Work, which is free of charge and available at tourist information centres across Slovenia. This guide is accessible to anyone interested in the lives and work of the architect and his wife. It also accompanies the souvenirs from The Gift of Slovenian Architecture collection.

V letu 2015 smo praznovali 150. obletnico rojstva arhitekta, urbanista in inovatorja Maksa Fabianija, ki je živel in delal v Sloveniji, Italiji in Avstriji. Njegovo obletnico smo obeležili z različnimi dogodki, razstavami, konferencami in simpoziji, in to v vseh treh državah. K sodelovanju so bila vabljena društva, galerije, muzeji, javni zavodi in druge organizacije, ki delujejo na področju kulture, umetnosti in turizma v Sloveniji, Italiji in Avstriji.

CAS je imel v okviru projekta Fabiani 2015 povezovalno vlogo med sodelujočimi organizacijami. K projektu smo povabili mentorje in študente Naravoslovnotehniške fakultete (UL NTF), Oddelek za grafično oblikovanje, ki so pripravili osem osnutkov celostne grafične podobe – CGP za projekt Fabiani 2015. K projektu so se pridružili tudi mentorji in študentje Fakultete za dizajn UP in Naravoslovnotehniške fakultete UL, Oddelka za tekstilije, ki so soustvarjali kolekcijo Darilo slovenske arhitekture: Maks Fabiani. Projekt Darilo slovenske arhitekture je pomemben za izobraževanje laične in strokovne javnosti o bogati kulturno-arhitekturni dediščini Slovenije.
