Savin Sever was a Slovene architect. He was the son of a lawyer from the Littoral temporarily working in Krsko, but he grew up in Maribor and Ljubljana. Sever is considered one of the most typical representatives of the Ljubljana school of Architecture. His work represents a synthesis of the tradition of Joze Plecnik and the influence of Edvard Ravnikar, whom he studied under. Sever is considered one of the most important Slovenian architects after the Second World War.
WorksHis best-known works include the Mladinska Knjiga printing office, the Astra department store, the Slovenian Automobile Association (AMZS) pavilion, the Merkur store, the Poljane parking garage, the portal to the Karavanke Tunnel, and the Triplex parking garage.
