Constructing an affordable arcadia

This video was recorded at MAO Unfinished Modernisations: between Utopia and Pragmatism, Ljubljana 2012. During the mid-1950s tourism developed on the Yugoslavian coast, aimed partially at the domestic but above all the foreign market. Tourism became an important branch of the economy and the main source of foreign currency for the whole of Yugoslavia. Simultaneously we saw the development of integrated planning, covering urban design and architecture, of holidaymaking complexes guided by modernist principles, with much attention devoted to the protection of natural resources and controlled building density.
