Maks Fabiani's Secession Works Portrayed in Photos



The exhibition, featuring 116 large-format photos by Miran Kambič, highlights Fabiani's work in Ljubljana and, more broadly, the city's Art Nouveau-style architecture. It will be on show until 14 May.

Fabiani, a representative of the Vienna Secession, is considered one of the key Central European architects at the turn of the 19th century, having worked extensively in Vienna, Ljubljana, Gorizia and Trieste.

After finishing architecture studies in Vienna in 1888, he worked as an architecture professor and in the bureau of the architect Otto Wagner. He left Vienna in 1917 and settled in Gorizia.

His key works in Ljubljana include Prešeren Square; Mladika, the current seat of the Foreign Ministry; the Miklošič Park; the Hribar House; and a zoning law for renovation of the city centre after the 1895 earthquake, which was partially implemented.
