Abstract

This paper addresses the question of developing the Yugoslav identity through the work of Milan Zloković, who significantly marked modern architecture in Yugoslavia. According to Ignjatović (2007), there are three main paradigms conserning the development of Yugoslav identity in architecture: primordial, syncretic and universal. In this paper, we argue that Zloković’s opus belongs to the primordial as well as the universal system of knowledge. He was devoted to modern ideas correspondant to Yugoslav political vision of the time. The contribution of Milan Zloković to shaping the Yugoslav identity in architecture has been researched through his main fields of interest in architectural theory – (1) traditional architectural values of Balkans and (2) proportional systems and modular coordination – and its complex expression in his (3) architectural practice of public buildings. Zloković has never divied his theoretical standings from his endeavours to apply them in his practical work.
