Concretopia is a personal journey through a concrete utopia, combining the double meaning of the word concrete, referring to both the material and the idea – in this case the utopia of the socialist state of the former Yugoslavia revisited through its architecture.

Socialist architecture of Yugoslavia has outlived its country. However, the legacy and its position on today’s urban, cultural, and political maps are constantly changing. Concretopia pays tribute to this unique cultural heritage and assesses its importance in the remembrance of one generation and today’s societal landscape. 

I have revisited and recreated parts of my own Concretopia that took place in the spaces where my friends and I used to live, play, fall in love and say goodbye – outlining my personal vision through the synthesis of the aesthetics of the socialist architecture and the vivid memories that chronicle the first 28 years of my life in Yugoslavia.
