In the Bauhaus centenary year, introduction to one of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia’s first commercial buildings conceived in the Modernist manner is aimed at presenting the main postulates of architectural functionalism that found their place in the architecture of the Bauhaus circle as well. In the walk through Ehrlich’s bank, we will try to “reconstruct” the original forms of the central counter room, which, through its purified forms, an open plan and the abundance of light from the ceiling lantern, opened a new chapter in the conception of the “treasury” architecture space in our regions.

The number of participants is limited. Due to the procedure for entering the building, it is necessary to provide additional information from the ID card.

The historical development of the old downtown of Zemun, from its formation in the early 18th century to this very day, shows a natural continuity of the creation, expansion and the definite formation of an urbanized unit with all the elements reflecting the complex social relations, population structure, economic trends, cultural circumstances, social potentials and, in general, the totality of an urban life within a 250-year span. The development of the old downtown especially reflects the process of the formation of the spatial framework of life in various epoch, through a construction and architectural transformation.

The Cerak – Vinogradi residential area was built in the period from 1978 to 1985 in the area without inherited urban development layers. It was built on the basis of the design of prof. Darko Marušić, architect, Milenija Marušić, architect, and dr Nedeljko Borovnica, which was selected at the Yugoslav invitation competition in 1977. This year, due to the preservation of the original structure and architecture, it gained a place on a list of cultural goods and thus became the first residential complex in Serbia, which is completely under the protection of Belgrade city Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments.

After the Second World War, in 1947, the Artisan Club building was given to Radio Belgrade and was adapted for the purposes of a radio station. To that end, the ground floor restaurant was transformed into a music and drama studio, while former hotel rooms were turned into editorial boards. As Radio Belgrade expanded, together with technology improvements, new studios for broadcasting and editing were added. The area previously occupied by the “Avala” cinema is now a large music studio used for public recordings. In that interior time capsule, one can still recognize the original features of the interior and the lamps and chandeliers from the 1930s.

As a member of various teams, Aleksandar Stjepanović took part in all the major competitions scheduled in our country, but it is blocks 22, 23 and 39 in Novi Beograd and the Faculty of Philosophy in Novi Sad that are his greatest feats in Serbia - each at a different level of finalization. We will present the works of professor Stjepanović by depicting the phenomena related to the city’s crossing the river Sava and the forgotten terminology and we will describe the mechanisms that resulted in such architecture.

In 1937, four years after designing the Artisans’ Club building (today’s Radio Belgrade), architect Bogdan Nestorović won another competition and was given a possibility to design another multifunctional and intriguing building in terms of urban development - the administrative building of the Privileged Export Stock Company (PRIZAD). The building housed the Gestapo offices during the occupation of Belgrade in the Second World War. Since the 1960s, it has housed Tanjug - the Telegraphic Agency of New Yugoslavia. Hence the Morse code above the main entrance to the building from Obilićev venac street. Today, PRIZAD is regarded as an anthological example of late Modernism in Belgrade’s interwar architecture. It is an important urban planning landmark of this part of the city.

Today, after more than a century of its existence, the New Cemetery represents a historical monument and memorial of special importance for national history and culture. Due to the numerous memorial monuments, architectural entities, sculptures and a large number of distinguished persons buried there, the New Cemetery was designated in 1983 as having great cultural and historical heritage significance for the Republic of Serbia. In 2004 the New Cemetery became a member of the Association of Significant Cemeteries of Europe (ASCE).

This year, visitors will have a unique opportunity to visit the military cemeteries: Austro-Hungarian, French, Italian and Bulgarian, that are usually closed for the public.    

The walk includes a visit to the Pančevo city centre, three main squares, important buildings monuments and urban design, an abandoned urbanistic project from the '60s, Museum - old and new city hall, industrial monuments and stories about meritorious citizens Đorđe Weifert, Uroš Predić, Mihajlo Pupin and Nebojša Glogovac. Visitors will be impressed by the unusual contrast between the medieval and baroque architecture of Vojlovica monastery and futuristic Oil Refinery in the very surroundings.

Walking through the historical center of Belgrade, from Queen Natalia Street and Zeleni venac to lower Dorćol, we will pass important buildings from the first half of the 20th century, until 1960, whose authors are women. Women architects have been active in Serbia since the beginning of the century and with their works they have marked our built environment.

The presence of Jews in Belgrade has been recorded since the sixteenth century. During the centuries the Jews in the region have participated in the creation of the visual culture of the city. The walk: “Architecture and Memory: Jewish Heritage in Belgrade” will present to the audience the basic topography of Jewish heritage.
