The architectural historian Bogo Zupančič holds a PhD from the Ljubljana Faculty of Architecture. As a curator at the Ljubljana Museum of Architecture and Design, he studies architecture from the early twentieth century onward and the social conditions that influenced it. So far, his exploration of that period has been summarized in seven books: Ljubljanski Nebotičnik – denar in arhitektura (The Ljubljana Skyscraper: Money and Architecture, 2001), Arhitekt Josip Costaperaria in ljubljansko moderno meščanstvo (Architect Josip Costaperaria and Ljubljana’s Modern Middle Class, 2004), the four-part work Usode ljubljanskih stavb in ljudi 1–24, 25–48, 49–72, 73–93 (Fates of Ljubljana’s Residents and Buildings, 2005–2008), Ljubljanska inženirska zbornica 1919–44 (The Ljubljana Chamber of Engineers 1919–1944, 2013), and Plečnikovi študenti in drugi jugoslovanski arhitekti v Le Corbusierovem ateljeju (Plečnik’s Students and Other Yugoslav Architects in Le Corbusier’s Studio), published in early 2018. Zupančič received the Plečnik Medal for his publications in 2006.
Due to their breadth and local currency, his in-depth specialist works are indispensable for any contemporary Slovenian architect or fan of Ljubljana’s urban architecture.
