Belgrade architecture

I keep pointing in all directions: look there, and there, and there! Gorgeous houses beneath the soot and weariness!

My Serbian company just looks and shake their heads. Apparently, they are not making any distinction between the Tito era concrete houses and the ”purebred”, prewar modernism by architects like Jan Dubovy and Dragisa Brasovan.

Tito era houses, like this, are not the most beautiful, but apparently comfortable enough to keep serving the Serbians.

This is more like it!

A lot of work is needed, but what a modernist beauty! I hope is that the Serbians are nice to their prewar houses, and respect the ideas of their architects  when they restore them

I found this extraordinarily interesting book which I ordered from Amazon UK. Looking forward to read it when I get home!
