Novi Beograd – the unfinished third city located in the Puszta between Zemun and the old Belgrad, flanked by the Danube and Seva, built under Josip Broz Tito.

Close by the former parliament of Yugoslavia “B26” rises, distinctive public as a signal and landmark, the airy appearing façade truss seems like an antagonist to the strictly zoned Novi Beograd which Tito planned as his Washington D.C. “B26” mirrors no display of power but an orientation mark for the government- and residential area which has been rasterized on the drawing board and finds itself in constant changes since the breakup of Yugoslavia.

It’s the aim to meet real needs with qualitative and sustainable concepts, not to encounter them with helpless solution suggestions.

Today the district is one of the main densification areas (transformation of waste land into center citizen zones) of Serbia, an accreted area which isn’t denying or eliminating its history but at the same time lets modernity tie up in a post-communistic era.

Novelty of form isn’t developed because of static and theoretical discourses of formisms but to connect – connect to a long tradition of steady re-orientation in former Yugoslavia.

Residential / office / hotel functions are connected, including accordant facilities. Three functions, connected at intersections and overlapping levels which aim to create synergies in daily life; several recreational areas are integrated.

Significance and merged inner usages communicate the democratic idea behind the concept. “B26” offers flexibility for various usages. Activation of the thermal energy storage / heat storage via a climate mantle concept; a constant air exchange is reached through natural lifting and adds to an optimal climate in the building.
