Between 1948 and 1980 Yugoslavia pursued a “third way,” situating itself between the capitalism of the West and the communism of the Soviet Union. As President Josip Broz Tito embarked on a campaign to unite and modernize six formerly independent republics, architecture became a key tool. Together, we will see how Yugoslavia’s distinct approach to communal housing, urbanism, and memorials helped to build this new nation. This session meets at the entrance to Toward a Concrete Utopia: Architecture in Yugoslavia, 1948–1980, Floor 3.

This session is led by Lauren Kaplan.
