Syracuse Architecture Alumni trip to Slovenia

The Syracuse University School of Architecture, in collaboration with the Office of Alumni Engagement, is pleased to announce an exclusive Syracuse Architecture Alumni Tour to Slovenia. The trip will be led by Professor Emeritus Randall Korman, and is especially designed to serve the interests of our architecture alumni. The inclusive dates are September 17 through September 25, 2020. The trip is being organized through AHI Travel, a premier agency that has had a 10-year relationship with the Office of Alumni Engagement at Syracuse University.

The eight-day tour will be based in the picturesque capital city of Ljubljana, home of the noted Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik, an important pioneer of modern architecture. Visits will be made to his house and studio, as well as built works such as the National Library, the Central Market and the Zale Cemetery. Other architectural venues within the city will include visits to the Museum of Architecture and Design, St. Michael Church and the Baroque Cathedral.
