Description

This monograph has been prepared by the France Stele Institute of Art History of ZRC SAZU and the Slovene Centre of Architecture in collaboration with many authors from different institutions. It is based on a series of four exhibitions held between 2016 and 2019 in the Dessa Gallery with aim to shed light on a neglected part of the Slovenian architectural oeuvre. The works of forty women designers are presented, from the first pre-war graduates to the post-war generations of the architects, civil engineers and designers who, with their work and achievements, paved the way for later generations of women. This book is, thus, dedicated to the female pioneers, who played an active role in drafting and designing and leaving a mark on their environment. They were the silent companions working in the shadow of better known professors, colleagues, fathers, and husbands, who received more professional acknowledgement than they did. Even today, it is difficult to determine their actual part in the design and implementation of many Slovenian architectural masterpieces, from Jože Plečnik’s Ljubljana Central Market to Edvard Ravnikar’s Republic Square (Trg republike).
