Congratulations to the team at Open House Slovenia who were awarded Plečnik Award, the most prestigious national award in the field of architecture. It was launched in 1972, to mark the centenary of Slovenia's most acclaimed architect Jože Plečnik (1872-1957), and to highlight outstanding achievements in Slovene architecture.
