Saved! – Plečnik Stadium
By Jože Plečnik, Ljubljana, Slovenia, 1935

Great news!

Docomomo International is glad to inform that one of Ljubljana Modern’s masterpieces, Plečnik Stadium, is saved from demolition.

The Stadium was in an extreme risk of being demolished due to a project of a new modern sport complex, the Bežigrad Sports Park (BSP) including a large-scale construction of skyscrapers, office buildings and underground storeys.
Thankfully, the Ministry of Environment announced this week, that they have not approved the proposed project for the redevelopment of the Plečnik’s Stadium.
We think this is a big success and we hope the project will now find the right way for a new and better life of this important modern heritage.
Docomomo International is very pleased to know that all the awareness raised on the heritage significance of the Plečnik Stadium had a positive repercussion. The efforts of Docomomo Slovenia are greatly appreciated. Hopefully, the project will now find the right way for a new and better life of this important modern heritage for future generations.
