The first comprehensive study of the modern movement in Serbian architecture.


Ljiljana Blagojevic is a practicing architect and an architectural historian and theoretician. She is Lecturer at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Belgrade, and teaches at the School for History and Theory of Images in Belgrade.


"Ljiljana Blagojevic's book is a welcome addition to the pioneering series of books on Central and Eastern European architecture that MIT Press initiated some years ago. Not only does the author bring to light surprising discoveries that have escaped the notice of previous historians of architectural modernism, but she succeeds in describing the specific situation of Serbian architecture in a way that connects it to European developments of the past as well as to theoretical debates of the present. This book restores Belgrade to its rightful place on the map of modernism."--Akos Moravanszky, Professor of Architectural Theory, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, and author of *Competing Visions: Aesthetic Vision and Social Imagination in Central European Architecture* "John Stuart's lucid translation of and introduction to Paul Scheerbart's ironic sci-fi novel The Gray Cloth of 1914 (a companion piece to his prose-poem Glasarchitektur of the same year) confirms Scheerbart's reputation as the primary source for the anarchic techno-utopianism that pervades the entire trajectory of German Expressionist architecture. As close to Baron Munchausen and Gulliver's Travels as to Jules Verne and the psycho-physics of Gustav Theodor Fechner, Scheerbart's astral modernity envisages a brightly colored, orientalized, ferro-vitreous architecture, at one with a pacified cosmos."--Kenneth Frampton, Ware Professor of Architecture, Columbia University "By re-reading with a critical eye the fifty-year-old techno-aesthetic discourse of the military-industrial complex as found in the thought and architecture of Gyorgy Kepes, Eliot Noyes and above all Eero Saarinen, Martin compels us to reassess the curtain-wall corporate architecture of the 50s as if its modular laconic character was in and of itself an analog for telematic organization and control. This scholarly analysis of hitherto unexamined material draws special attention to the significance of this period for the future of architecture."--Kenneth Frampton, Ware Professor of Architecture, Columbia University "Long overdue, Simon Sadler's book finally gives us a meticulous ideological history of the evolution of Archigram, one which will prove invaluable to all future accounts of British architectural culture during the 1960s."--Kenneth Frampton, Ware Professor of Architecture, Columbia University
