    Belgrade, Serbia_ Museum of Contemporary Art
    Architects: Ivan Antić and Ivanka Raspopović
    Date: 1961-1963

    The museum is located in the park region of Ušće on the edge of New Belgrade. Although the museum is currently undergoing a renovation, I was able to see some of the larger sculptures in the park surrounding the main building. The proximity of the museum to a very active pedestrian river walk opens up part of the park to the Sava River towards Belgrades’ Kalemegdan Citadel - a fortress turned park, it is one of the oldest and , in my opinion, most beautiful parts of Belgrade. The structure is the only permanent built work in the park area and can be seen mingling with the tree canopies from Kalemegdan‘s many look out points.

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.
