    Zagreb, Croatia _Social/Housing Bank
    Architect: Ivan Vitić
    Date:

    I came across this project as I was walking around the city. I just arrived from the train station and decided to familiarize myself with the streets. Although I was not in search of this particular project, the wooden shutters caught my eye. After a quick look on the net, I learned that it is a National Bank Residential Block designed by the Croatian architect Ivan Vitić.

About this Blog

This research is driven to uncover and examine the idiosyncrasies of the architecture that grew out of social modernism in Yugoslavia in the 60s and 70s. Through my travels to the Ex-Yugoslav republics, I will investigate the ways in which these characteristics are informed, urbanistically and architecturally, by the historical, social and –above all- built domain of the preceding decades in Yugoslavia.
