Jun '10 - Jul '10
After Ljubljana I took an overnight bus back to Croatia, this time I headed down south towards the Dalmatian Coast. Although I have just one project to visit, I decided to mark this halfway point in my travels with a break to re-fuel. I am currently spending a couple of weeks exploring and enjoying the region.

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.
