Church of St. Francis of Assisi

cerkev druga
The Church of St. Francis of Assisi in Šiška, Ljubljana was commissioned by the Franciscan Brothers, and completed in 1928, the bell tower in 1931. It is of bold and quite stunning design, creating a wide open space full of light, regarded at the time by many as too far from the Catholic tradition. It was Plečnik’s first major project that inaugurated his plans for Ljubljana. With this grandiose and astonishing building, the architect introduced into Ljubljana a new set of dimensions and a new standard of building on a grand scale. It represented the beginning of the “urban planning phenomenon” that is Plečnik’s Ljubljana.
