As per our current Database, Stjepan Planic died on Dec 26, 1980 (age 79).
He was employed by architect Rudolf Lubinsky from 1920 until 1922. He opened his own firm in 1927. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts, Zagreb, from 1927 until 1931.
From 1920 to 1922 he worked for the architect Rudolf Lubinsky and, after 1927, in his own practice in Zagreb. He also studied architecture (1927–31) at the Academy of Fine Arts Zagreb, in the studio of Drago Ibler and in 1931 joined the progressive group founded by Ibler, the Earth Group.
In 1942 he converted the circular Arts Pavilion, Trg žrtava fašizma, Zagreb, designed by the sculptor Ivan Meštrović, into a mosque by adding three free-standing minarets around the body of the central cylinder and designing a new interior richly decorated with arabesques. The mosque, a monumental and somewhat bizarre addition to the Central European appearance of its surroundings, was demolished in 1949 for political reasons, and Planić was anathemized because of it.
On 30 July 1970 Planić retired but continued with his architectural work. In 1968 he received the Vladimir Nazor Award for Lifetime Achievement and in 1972 the "Viktor Kovačić" Award for Lifetime Achievement.
Stjepan's family was residing in Zagreb when he was born, which was a center for the arts and culture.
