This paper studies significant and forgotten, but not less important, built and unrealised designs by Serbian architect Aleksandar Deroko. It seeks to achieve a continuous view in dealing with Deroko's architectural work versus the historical discontinuity of political, territorial-geographic and social circumstances. It is impossible to separate Deroko as an architect from Deroko as a scholar, researcher, historian of architecture and art, an academic professor, painter, writer, chronicler of his time, protector, conservator and historiographer of Serbia cultural heritage. The main aim of this paper is to apply comprehensive research approach within which his work in the field of architectural design will be considered in a complemenraty and pluralistic way. Deroko's architectural projects examined represent distillate of Deroko's erutide personality, which casts shadow on relevant questions of Serbian history of architecture placement: How to understand it, observe and examine it, fr...om Yugoslav or Serbian perspective, from the position of continuity or discontinuity, through characterictics of general or particular?
