Dragana Jurisic - The Lost Country “Yugoslavia fell apart in 1991. With the disappearance of the country, at least one million five hundred thousand Yugoslavs vanished, like the citizens of Atlantis, into the realm of imaginary places and people. Today, in the countries that came into being after Yugoslavia’s disintigration, there is a total denial of the Yugoslav identity.”

MUZEJ VAZDUHOPLOVSTVA NA SURCINU

Lokacija: Beograd, Srbija

Kada je 1969. godine raspisan javni jugoslovenski konkurs za nesvakidasnji objekat u arhitektonskoj praksi, izmedju sezdesetak pristiglih radova, ziri je proglasio pobjednikom jedinu ideju koja je predlagala da fasada objekta bude konkavna staklena opna. U obrazlozenju odluke ziri je rekao:

"Kruzno rijesenje izlozbenih prostorija dobro je u funkcionalnom smislu. Posebno se istice rijesenje prostora za izlaganje orginalnih letjelica koji je dat po vanjskom obimu kruga, dobro dimenzionisan, sa dobrim mogucnostima izlaganja eksponata i stalnim promjenama senzacija prilikom kretanja kroz izlozbu. Promjenljivost vizuelnih dozivljaja posjetilaca, kako u odnosu na eksterijer tako i u odnosu na enterijer, predstavlja izuzetan kvalitet rijesenja. Osnovni koncept funkcionalnog rijesenja daje ton i iskreno je izrazen u arhitektonskom oblikovanju."

Na osnovu opravdanih primjedbi zirija smanjen su staklene povrsine sto nije bitno uticalo na osnovnu arhitektonsku koncepciju, a cime je investitoru olaksano buduce odrzavanje Muzeja. Osamnaestmetarsku visinu po cijelom obimu objekta zatvara kruzna ispupcena opna od termoreflektirajuceg stakla u jednakim trougaonim segmentima. Ova izmjena povukla je za sobom i izmjenu krovne konstrukcije. Izvanrednom prostornom i konstruktorskom intuicijom beogradskog staticara Radeta Mihajlovica ostvaren je krov-kisobran od montaznih ovalnih koruba iz betona slozenih izmedju dvanaest prenapregnutih montaznih konzola oslonjenih na isti broj stubova.

Only 90s kids will remember: people believing that the Kosovo genocide was a hoax to distract us from Clintons sex scandals.

A series of posters that thematically deals with covers of popular Yugoslav magazines. The magazines have been chosen based on the topics they wrote about, and their titles have been typographically and semantically reconstructed so that they visually simplify and symbolically represent the contents they dealt with. The looks of the covers revives and in a condensed form reflects the subject of the magazine in accordance with the emerging title.

If you haven’t read the SWP’s critique of the Great British Bake Off then you’re missing out.

Honestly read it. They have become a parody of themselves.
