The iconic modernist structures of New Belgrade have always been a symbol and a testimony of all ideological shifts in the Yugoslav and Serbian society. More than 60 years of its urban existence has brought numerous adjustment and changes in its economic, social and functional structure, but its rigid and over-scaled urban matrix has mostly remained untouched. Once flooded marshland, New Belgrade had been planned by numerous of Yugoslav architects who implemented their visions and beliefs into the new planned city. However, a process of a specific urban reconstruction has been started in the 1990s, tackling the sensitive issues of the modernist architectural legacy, challenging the purity of the original conception and introducing some new patterns of behavior and urban needs.
