The Gimnazija Velenje is a three-storey building with flat roof, designed by the architect Oton Gaspari in 1958. The school represents typical Gaspari’s aesthetics evident in abstract patterns and architectural elements which are emphasized with colour and materials. The floor plan is explicitly functionalistic.The building is most distinguished for its concrete brisoleys on southern façade. Also interesting is the architect’s correlation to Mondrian’s painting, which is most vividly expressed in colourful floors.
