Town hall of Kolašin, Montenegro. It’s a former Yugoslavian Spomenik (monument) built during Tito’s regime of the 60s and 70s in the former Yugoslavia. Photo by Jan Kempenaers.
Presumably designed by either Bogdan Bogdanović or Gradimir Medaković, it stands out from the other Slavic Monuments as actually being the town hall and community centre of Kolašin, a small town in northern Montenegro.
Resonating with the avant-garde architecture being built in the Soviet Union at the time, the utopia being offered by these architects examplifies what Owen Hatherley has described as ‘nostagia for a time yet to come’.
