Concept Design

Vjenceslav Richter

Zagreb, 21 April 1971 

The proposed project in two variants is one of the most consequential and the most original works that have appeared in the world recently.

Its orientation towards the language of a contemporary industrial aesthetics is particularly positive. With its design values based on the application of elements of roller, i.e. pipe, this structure will be at the same time a first-rate exhibit, and, as the newly created ambiance, it will influence the art life of Sarajevo.

The ground pan disposition is persuasive, while the scheme convincingly articulates the fact that this structure will respond to multiple needs of the community. The permeation between the interior and exterior spaces, and their direct relation to the existing flora / dialogue with the logs of Canadian poplars, offer a possibility to take in the quality of these spaces.“
